The 17th century homestead sits on 25+ beautiful acres in the heart of what was known as Salem Village in 1692 (today the town of Danvers).

The circa 1678 house was occupied by Rebecca Nurse and then members of the Nurse family until 1798.

It was from this home that 72-year-old Rebecca Nurse was arrested on the charges of Witchcraft in March of 1692.

She was the oldest woman accused, and executed during the Salem Witch Trials.

Visit the Meetinghouse, an exact replica of the 1672 Salem Village Meetinghouse where many of the early hearings of suspects such as Tituba took place.

Follow the tree lined path to the back of the property to the ancient Nurse Family Cemetery.

It has been a longstanding family tradition that Rebecca’s son and husband retrieved her body after her execution and secretly buried it here.

300 years after his wrongful execution, another victim of the Hysteria, George Jacobs, was buried here after being found on his former property in a lone unmarked grave.

He remains the ONLY known burial site of anyone convicted of witchcraft during the Salem trials.
