: : : PP and Goody Sandy -- have either one of you visited
: : : the memorial for the 19 innocent people hanged as
: : : witches in Salem? NOT the tacky Witch Museum -- this
: : : is a lovely little garden with stone benches, each
: : : bearing the name of one of the accused. I'm told
: : : during the solstices people leave flowers and burn
: : : candles on the benches, which I think is neat.
: : I would love to visit this memorial some day, Doc.
: : The Witch Museum is tacky, is it? If I ever get there, I'll take that in, too, tacky or not...fascinated by the whole scene.
: : You live near there, Doc?
: : Myrrh
: Wish I did. *sigh* Maybe someday. Some good friends of mine
: live around there and when I visited them we went there.
: And yes, the Witch Museum is truely tackamundo, but I liked
: it anyway, even though my friends refused on the grounds
: of good taste to go in with me. The Peabody-Essex museum
: is THE place to go, though -- it has the original documents
: from the 1692 trials. There's also a log cabin you can
: see from that time period. Danvers, which is right next to
: Salem, was originally called Salem Village, and that's
: actually where all the accused people lived. According
: to the guide books I read, a few of their houses are still
: standing -- Rebecca Nurse's for one, and John Procter's
: as well. When I go back in the spring we're going to try
: to see them.
