Mission Statement

The Witch House, a property of the City of Salem Parks and Recreation Department, is a historic site offering public tours, educational programs, and historical interpretation. It is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the social history and material culture of the seventeenth century, as well as providing information about the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692 and their connection to the house's long-time owner, Judge Jonathan Corwin. The Witch House, which is listed on the National Register of 1675 and is the only home standing in modern-day Salem with direct ties to the witchcraft trials of 1692. It was restored to its seventeenth-century appearance in 1945 by Historic Salem, Incorporated, and opened to the public in 1947. The Witch House is committed to providing an exemplary program of public access that interprets the history, architecture, and collections of the house in a relevant, educational, and engaging way.
