About The Jonathan Corwin House / The Witch House
The Jonathan Corwin House and The Witch House are two names for the same house, where wealthy Puritan Jonathan Corwin lived with his family in 1692—the year of the Salem Witch Trials. Corwin, in fact, was a magistrate and judge of the trials, during which both women and men were accused for the crime of practicing witchcraft, and many times executed. Today, visitors can tour Corwin's historic home, which is the last structure with direct ties to the 1692 trials, while learning about how the architecture, furniture, and artifacts tie in with the nation's history.
Built in 1930 to mark the tercentennial of Massachusetts, Pioneer Village is America's first living history museum. The village sits on three acres of land and contains various examples of colonial architecture: dugouts, wigwams, thatched roof cottages, and the Governor's Faire House. Culinary and medicinal gardens and a blacksmith shop further interpret early 17th-century colonial life.
