Welcome to Salem

Salem Massachusetts is a historic river-mouth port city on the Atlantic coast north of Boston. European settlement began in 1626 with a company of English Puritan fishermen. Salem is famous for the 1692 witch trials and executions that resulted from the Salem Puritans getting caught up in witch hysteria. The city is also the hometown of 19th century American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of “The Scarlet Letter”. Salem is very walkable, with easy access to the Salem Witch Museum and many related exhibits, the homes of witch trial judge Jonathon Corwin and Nathaniel Hawthorne, ghost tours, tall ships, and the Peabody Essex Museum, one of the top twenty art museums in the U.S.
