Begin the tour at the Salem Witch Trials Visitor Center. Follow the route provided on the app for the best experience. Throughout the tour, learn of the mass hysteria which took hold of the residents of the town of Salem, and the now-infamous witch trials which took place in 1692.

Learn about Bridget Bishop, who was the first accused witch to be executed at Gallows Hill.
