Salem…A Witches Brew of Scenery and History

Then came the scarlet letter


Salem Witch Museum

Roger Conant, the first settler of Salem. The statue stands in the intersection in front of the Witch Museum.

A short walk from the museum leads to some interesting discoveries.

Hawthorne Hotel

The Gull Lady, visiting her friends.

Home to relatives of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne visited the house many times as a child which gave influence for the book, House of Seven Gables.

Courtyard inside the grounds of the House of Seven Gables. The red building is Nathaniel Hawthorne’s childhood home. It was originally a few blocks from this site, but was moved to be a part of the museum.

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s home until he was four.

    Great photos, Lee. Hubby and I went to Salem on Halloween weekend. It was wonderful, fun, scary and crowded and we had a great time. Thanks for reminding me how lovely it is.
