The Salem Witch Trials Memorial (SWTM) honors those who unjustly lost their lives in 1692. As such, the SWTM is a place of reverence and should be treated with respect and dignity. The Salem Award Foundation raised funds to have the SWTM renovated in 2012. In an effort to maintain these renovations, we are reaching out to everyone who visits the Memorial to help us keep it in the condition it deserves.
Please observe the following guidelines at the Salem Witch Trials Memorial:

  • Please stay on the path!
  • DO maintain a respectful quiet for the space.
  • Avoid walking on the grass.
  • DO take a moment to consider the contemporary lessons of the witch trials. Feel free to sit quietly and contemplate on one of the granite benches.
  • DO feel free to leave flowers on the stones as a remembrance to those honored here.

We thank you for your cooperation in keeping this memorial a sacred space.
