Salem Travel Guide
Salem Local History
Salem was settled in 1626, and although it was at one stage an international hub of merchant shipping, it became notorious for the infamous witchcraft trials in 1692, when prejudice and hysteria brought about the deaths of 20 people. Today Salem cashes in on its notoriety and promotes its association with witchcraft as a tourism tool.
