Home Where Salem Witch Trial Victim Once Lived Up For Sale


By Meredith Ganzman

Just in time for Halloween, you can purchase the home of someone charged with practicing witchcraft during the Salem witch trials

John Proctor, the first male accused of witchcraft, lived in the home, before he was found guilty and hung in 1692.

During this time more than 200 people were cited, and more than a dozen were actually found guilty and hung for being witches.   

The home, built in 1638, is nearly 4,000-square-feet and still has some of the original parts, such as the wooden beams.

It is going on the market for $600K and has been updated with an in ground pool.

A local historical society is also considering purchasing it to make it available to the public.
