As you sightsee along the historic cobblestone streets of Salem, it’s hard to believe this quaint colonial town once suffered so great an injustice that it plunged the town into chaos and resulted in the unfair persecution of innocent men and women.

Delve deeper into the roots this mysterious and often misunderstood practice on a journey through time, exploring the impact of witchcraft on Salem and the world, and revealing the true nature of these powerful forces that continue to influence our lives to this day.
