Gallow's Hill Ghosts Do Haunt the living

BY MOLLY STEWART

A Spellbound Tours™ Exclusive!

I live in the "Witch City" Salem, Massachusetts. I have been doing professional paranormal investigations since becoming a licensed ghost hunter, while living in New Orleans, back in 1999.

Now that I'm in Salem, I do a lot of my own personal night ghost hunts up at Gallow's Hill. This is where, back in 1692 they hung 19 innocent people as "witches". Many people associate the city with the Salem witch trials of 1692, which the city embraces both as a source of tourism and culture -- police cars are adorned with witch logos, a local public school is known as the Witchcraft Heights Elementary School, the Salem High School football team is named The Witches, and Gallows Hill, a site of numerous public hangings, is currently used as a playing field for various sports.

The original witches hanging tree does not exist anymore, and the deep crevasse where they tossed the dead bodies of the poor wretches has closed in upon itself.

Apparently the Witch Hysteria was just a way to get even and settle old grudges with your enemies, get rid of competitors, take over someone's property and destroy political opponents.They even hung two dogs for giving people the "evil eye", crushed one old man to death under heavy stones, over a period of several days, and hung the other unfortunates from a tree, on the highest spot overlooking old Salem Towne.

Witch Ghost
Several years ago, under a full moon, I was able to capture this picture of a ghost walking by me, very closely. I did not see this with my eyes, only the camera picked it up. You can see the torso, legs and head and one arm starting to take shape.

Ectoplasm at Gallows Hill Park

gALLOW'S HILL GHOST. You can see the torso, legs and head and one arm starting to take shape.

According to many professional ghost hunters when a person dies a violent sudden death, they tend to stay "earthbound" for a very long time, sometimes centuries. I am going back tonight....wish me luck!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why do ghosts linger? Why don’t they move on? Are all ghosts only here if they are hostile? Or are they here to protect loved ones? Do suicide and murder victims tend to stay “earthbound” more often than other spirits? What causes poltergeist activity? These are the questions we try to answer during our investigations. On our nightly ghost tours in Salem, Massachusetts, we’ll answer those questions, as well as explain paranormal theories regarding ghosts. You might even photograph spirits at various locations during this tour. (We have actually had tour guests experience ghosts touching them, pulling their hair, or sending them screaming into the night!) We also have a “Guest Ghost Gallery” of ghost photos taken by our guests during these tours. These are also posted on Official Web Site www.spellboundtours.com.

If you feel you have an unwelcome “guest” living in your home or place of business, call us at (978) 745 – 0138 and we’ll listen to your story, conduct an in-depth telephone interview and see if it warrants a follow-up investigation. No quack calls please! We take this very seriously, conduct our research scientifically and don’t like to have our valuable time wasted! Our clients are assured complete privacy and actual locations will be kept secret at the request of our clients.

Laurie Cabot

Laurie Cabot is an American Wiccan high priestess, and was one of the first people to popularize Wicca in the United States. She is the author of such books as The Power of the Witch, and also founded the Cabot Tradition of the Science of Witchcraft and the Witches' League for Public Awareness. In the 1970s, Cabot was declared the "official witch of Salem, Massachusetts", by then-Governor Michael Dukakis, to honor her work with special needs children.

She continues to reside in Salem, where she owns a shop called The Cat, the Crow, and the Crown. Cabot claims to be related to the prominent Boston Brahmin Cabot family. She is perhaps the most high-profile self-proclaimed witch in Massachusetts. She is a part of Salem lore, and a bona-fide local celebrity in that city and throughout Boston's North Shore.

Laurie Cabot was born Mercedes Elizabeth Kearsey in 1933 in Weewoka, Oklahoma. She grew up in California and came back east to New England as a teenager. She maintains that her interest in the occult began in childhood. She developed this interest in Boston as she became a young woman haunting the halls of the Boston Public Library.  She married twice, with each marriage producing a daughter, Jody Cabot and Penny Cabot, respectively. She chose to raise her daughters as witches, and dressed her younger girl mainly in black when the two would be seen in public.

Laurie Cabot, known as the "Official Witch of Salem," is an ordained High Priestess descended from Celtic ancestry. Having practiced Witchcraft for over forty years, she founded the Cabot Tradition of the Science of Witchcraft and the Witches' League for Public Awareness (WLPA), an anti-defamation organization aimed at correcting the many misconceptions about Witchcraft. She is the author of Power of the Witch, Love Magic, Celebrate the Earth, and The Witch in Every Woman. Her books have been published in the United Kingdom, Japan, Italy, Brazil, and Russia. Laurie is a popular lecturer and teacher who has spoken on spiritual well-being and Celtic Witch mythology at Wellesley College, Salem State College, Rutgers College, and Interface, among others. Her frequent television and radio appearances, including Unsolved Mysteries, Oprah, and National Public Radio, have helped educate the public about the goodness of Witchcraft, our planet's oldest Nature religion. She lives and works in Salem, Massachusetts.

Salem is a common name for towns and places, particularly in the Western world. In ancient times it was the name of a locality in the Near East (Palestine), and traditionally identified with Jerusalem, before the name "Jerusalem" was used.

SALEM'S REAL GHOSTS by Bonnie Flynn Jack Hollister

Well the story goes my boyfriend and I were in Salem, Massachusetts for halloween last year and he knows the town pretty well. And so we decided to go to the Gallows hill site (which is now a park) and started taking pictures .


I Felt drawn to this clearing where the trees almost made a circle of sorts . I kept taking pictures and more started happening .

The first 2 shots are of an orb, you can see its moving on its own so its not dust or rain particles.

The third is a mysterious mist that did not appear to the human eye. No one was smoking and it was not misty out.

the second to last shot looks like a women with her head bowed and hands in a prayer like stance or even tied up !

the last picture looks like a face of a young girl and some blonde hair and a bonnet like the Puritan style.

 


at that point I started to run! I was scared to death!! I assure you that these pictures are genuine proof of Ghost's existence. they have not been altered or tampered with. I've tried to debunk these pictures but can give no explanation of what else it could be.

At the stop sign take a left and Gallows Hill Park is straight ahead. If you are going toward Lynn, Proctor Street would be on your right.

Salem Map

.

The events which led to the Witch Trials actually occurred in what is now the town of Danvers, then a parish of Salem Town, known as Salem Village. Launching the hysteria was the bizarre, seemingly inexplicable behavior of two young girls; the daughter, Betty, and the niece, Abigail Williams, of the Salem Village minister, Reverend Samuel Parris.

The Witches Secret Spells!

The seeds of the hysteria that afflicted Salem Village, Massachusetts were sown in January 1692 when a group of young girls began to display bizarre behavior. The tight-knit community was at a loss to explain the convulsive seizures, blasphemous screaming, and trance-like states that afflicted the youngsters. The physicians called in to examine the girls could find no natural cause of the disturbing behavior. This of course was not attributable to a physical malady, the community reasoned that it must be the work of Satan. Witches had invaded Salem.

In February 1692 the village of Salem began praying and fasting in order to rid itself of the devil's and his influence. The girls were pressured to reveal who in the community controlled their behavior. Three women were identified and examined. One, Tituba (a slave), confessed to seeing the devil who appeared to her "sometimes like a hog and sometimes like a great dog." Even more troubling, Tituba confessed that a conspiracy of witches permeated Salem Village in every nook and krany..

 

Tituba was an Indian woman, not (as commonly believed) a Negro slave. She was originally from an Arawak village in South America, where she was captured as a child, taken to Barbados as a captive, and sold into slavery. It was in Barbados that her life first became entangled with that of Reverend Samuel Parris. She was likely between the age of 12 and 17 when she came into the Parris household. She was most likely purchased by Parris from one of his business associates, or given to settle a debt. Parris, at the time, was an unmarried merchant, leading to speculation that Tituba may have served as his concubine.

Tituba helped maintain the Parris household on a day-to-day basis. When Parris moved to Boston in 1680, Tituba and another Indian slave named John accompanied him. Tituba and John were married in 1689 about the time the Parris family moved to Salem. It is believed that Tituba had only one child, a daughter named Violet, who would remain in Parris's household until his death.

"I am Tituba the Witch."

Description: Scene in Longfellow's play "Giles Corey of Salem Farms" showing Rev. Cotton Mather encountering Tituba in the woods, as Mather travels to Salem Village to investigate the witchcraft accusations.

Source: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "Giles Corey of Salem Farms," in The Poetical Works of Longfellow. Houghton Mifflin Boston, 1902. Artist John W. Ehninger, 1880, p. 723.

Tituba made herself a likely target for witchcraft accusations when shortly after Parris's daughter, Betty, began having strange fits and symptoms, she participated in the preparation of a "witchcake" (a mixture of rye and Betty's urine, cooked and fed to a dog, in the belief that the dog would then reveal the identity of Betty's afflictor). Parris was enraged when he found out about the cake, and shortly thereafter the afflicted girls named Tituba as a witch. Parris beat her until she confessed.

Tituba was the first witch to confess in Salem, and she likely did it to avoid further punishment. In her confession she apologized for hurting Betty, claimed she never wanted to hurt Betty, and professed her love for the child. She also wove a lively tale of an active community of witches in Salem. She named Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne as witches. By confessing early on, Tituba avoided the ordeal of going to trial, joining with the afflicted girls in providing key evidence against accused witches. Her husband, John, would also fall into fits, and become afflicted.

http://www.gutenberg.org/files/17845/17845-h/17845-h.htm

Tituba, what evil spirit have you familiarity with?—None.

"Why do you hurt these children?—I do not hurt them.

"Who is it then?—The Devil, for aught I know.

"Did you never see the Devil?—The Devil came to me, and bid me serve him.

"Who have you seen?—Four women sometimes hurt the children.

"Who were they?—Goody Osburn and Sarah Good, and I do not know who the others were. Sarah Good and Osburn would have me hurt the children, but I would not.

"(She further saith there was a tall man of Boston that she did see.)

"When did you see them?—Last night, at Boston.

"What did they say to you?—They said, 'Hurt the children.'

"And did you hurt them?—No: there is four women and one man, they hurt the children, and then they lay all upon me; and they tell me, if I will not hurt the children, they will hurt me.[ii.24]
"But did you not hurt them?—Yes; but I will hurt them no more.

"Are you not sorry that you did hurt them?—Yes.

"And why, then, do you hurt them?—They say, 'Hurt children, or we will do worse to you.'

"What have you seen?—A man come to me, and say, 'Serve me.'

"What service?—Hurt the children: and last night there was an appearance that said, 'Kill the children;' and, if I would not go on hurting the children, they would do worse to me.

"What is this appearance you see?—Sometimes it is like a hog, and sometimes like a great dog.

"(This appearance she saith she did see four times.)

"What did it say to you?—The black dog said, 'Serve me;' but I said, 'I am afraid.' He said, if I did not, he would do worse to me.

"What did you say to it?—I will serve you no longer. Then he said he would hurt me; and then he looks like a man, and threatens to hurt me. (She said that this man had a yellow-bird that kept with him.) And he told me he had more pretty things that he would give me, if I would serve him.

"What were these pretty things?—He did not show me them.

"What else have you seen?—Two cats; a red cat, and a black cat.

"What did they say to you?—They said, 'Serve me.'

"When did you see them?—Last night; and they said, 'Serve me;' but I said I would not.

"What service?—She said, hurt the children.[ii.25]
"Did you not pinch Elizabeth Hubbard this morning?—The man brought her to me, and made pinch her.

"Why did you go to Thomas Putnam's last night, and hurt his child?—They pull and haul me, and make go.

"And what would they have you do?—Kill her with a knife.

"(Lieutenant Fuller and others said at this time, when the child saw these persons, and was tormented by them, that she did complain of a knife,—that they would have her cut her head off with a knife.)

"How did you go?—We ride upon sticks, and are there presently.

"Do you go through the trees or over them?—We see nothing, but are there presently.

"Why did you not tell your master?—I was afraid: they said they would cut off my head if I told.

"Would you not have hurt others, if you could?—They said they would hurt others, but they could not.

"What attendants hath Sarah Good?—A yellow-bird, and she would have given me one.

"What meat did she give it?—It did suck her between her fingers.

"Did you not hurt Mr. Curren's child?—Goody Good and Goody Osburn told that they did hurt Mr. Curren's child, and would have had me hurt him too; but I did not.

"What hath Sarah Osburn?—Yesterday she had a thing with a head like a woman, with two legs and wings.

"(Abigail Williams, that lives with her uncle Mr. Parris, said that she did see the same creature, and it turned into the shape of Goodie Osburn.)

"What else have you seen with Osburn?—Another thing, hairy: it goes upright like a man, it hath only two legs.[ii.26]
"Did you not see Sarah Good upon Elizabeth Hubbard, last Saturday?—I did see her set a wolf upon her to afflict her.

"(The persons with this maid did say that she did complain of a wolf. She further said that she saw a cat with Good at another time.)

"What clothes doth the man go in?—He goes in black clothes; a tall man, with white hair, I think.

"How doth the woman go?—In a white hood, and a black hood with a top-knot.

"Do you see who it is that torments these children now?—Yes: it is Goody Good; she hurts them in her own shape.

"Who is it that hurts them now?—I am blind now: I cannot see.

"Written by Ezekiel Cheever

 

When public sentiment towards the accusers and the trials began to change, Tituba recanted her confession. This further enraged Parris, who in retaliation, refused to pay the jailer's fee to get Tituba out a prison. As a result, she spent thirteen months in jail until an unknown person paid the seven pounds for her release and bought her. It is likely that the same person bought her husband, John, because Puritans were not inclined to split up married couples, even slaves. It is unknown what happened to her after she began her life with her new owner.

 

In March the afflicted girls accused Martha Corey. The three women previously denounced as colluding with the devil were marginal to the community. Martha Corey was different; she was an upstanding member of the Puritan congregation - her revelation as a witch demonstrated that Satan's influence reached to the very core of the community. Events snowballed as the accusatory atmosphere intensified and reached a fever pitch. During the period from March into the fall many were charged, examined, tried and condemned to death.

Hanged Witches in Salem.

 

The hangings started in June with the death of Bridget Bishop and continued through September. As winter approached, the hysteria played itself out as criticism of the procedures grew. In October, the colonial governor dissolved the local Court of inquiry. The convictions and condemnations for witchery stopped. Nineteen victims of the witch-hunt had been hanged, one crushed to death under the weight of stones and at least four died in prison awaiting trial.


The Salem witchcraft authority, Charles W. Upham, chose this hill as the probable site of the hangings of the nineteen condemned witches in 1692. Executions for witchcraft occurred here on Gallows Hill June 10, July 19, August 19, and September 22. After the September hangings, the Reverend Nicholas Noyes, turning to the eight bodies hanging from the tree, remarked,

"What a sad thing it is to see Eight Firebrands of Hell hanging there."

 

The county seat of Essex, Salem was the scene of the witchcraft trials in 1692. Those condemned were hanged on Gallows Hill. Giles Corey, who refused to stand trial, was pressed to death in a Salem field.

Mary Parker Hanged as a witch Septenber 22, 1692.


In 1692, the Salem jail stood on St. Peter Street (then called "Prison Lane") near its intersection with Federal Street. The traditional route taken by the condemned from the jail to Gallows Hill was through St. Peter Street, down Essex Street, and then through Boston Street to the point of its present intersection with Aborn Street, and from there to the summit of Gallows Hill. This roundabout path permitted the least precipitous approach to the brow of the hill.

Some authoities now believe that the actual site of the executions lies on a lower hill nearer the town. The great height and rugged terrain of this hill would have precluded transporting the condemned to this site in a cart, which is known to have occurred.

By the time the hysteria had spent itself, 24 people had died. Nineteen were hanged on Gallows Hill in Salem Town, but some died in prison. Giles Corey at first pleaded not guilty to charges of witchcraft, but subsequently refused to stand trial. This refusal meant he could not be convicted legally. However, his examiners chose to subject him to interrogation by the placing of stone weights on his body. He survived this brutal torture for two days before dying.

It is remarkable 552 original documents pertaining to the witchcraft trials have been preserved and are still stored by the Peabody Essex Museum.

Eerie memorabilia associated with the trials, such as the "Witch Pins" used in the examination of witches and a small bottle supposed to contain the finger bones of the victim George Jacobs can be found there as well.

Native Americans called the area "Naumkeag," meaning "eel land." Salem was founded at the mouth of the Naumkeag River in 1626 by a company of fishermen from Cape Ann led by Roger Conant, and incorporated in 1629. The name "Salem" is related to the Hebrew word "shalom" and Arabic word "salam," both meaning "peace." Conant was later supplanted by John Endicott, the governor assigned by the Massachusetts Bay Company. Salem originally included much of the North Shore, including Marblehead, set off in 1649. Most of the accused in the Salem Witch Trials lived in nearby "Salem Village," now Danvers. "Salem Village" also included Peabody and parts of present-day Beverly. Middleton, Topsfield, Wenham and Manchester-by-the-Sea, too, were once parts of Salem.

On February 26, 1775, patriots raised the drawbridge at the North River, preventing British Colonel Alexander Leslie and his troops from seizing stores and ammunition hidden in North Salem. During the Revolution, the town became a center for privateering. By 1790, Salem was the sixth largest city in the country, and a world famous seaport -- particularly in the China trade. Codfish was exported to the West Indies and Europe. Sugar and molasses were imported from the West Indies, tea from China, and pepper from Sumatra. Salem ships also visited Africa, Russia, Japan and Australia. During the War of 1812, privateering resumed.


Salem Harbor in 1907Prosperity would leave the city with a wealth of fine architecture, including Federal style mansions designed by Samuel McIntire, for whom the city's largest historic district is named. Incorporated a city in 1836, Salem adopted a city seal in 1839 with the motto "Divitis Indiae usque ad ultimum sinum" -- "To the farthest port of the rich East." Nathaniel Hawthorne was overseer of the port from 1846 until 1849. He worked in the Customs House near Pickering Wharf, his setting for the beginning of The Scarlet Letter. In 1858, Salem Willows Park was established, an amusement park on land jutting into the harbor.

But shipping would decline through the 19th century. Salem and its silting harbor were increasingly eclipsed by Boston and New York. Consequently, the city turned to manufacturing. Industries included tanneries, shoe factories and the Naumkeag Steam Cotton Company. Large parts of the mill town were destroyed in the Great Salem Fire of 1914, which began in the Korn Leather Factory. More than 400 homes burned, leaving 3,500 families homeless. But much of Salem's architectural legacy survived, helping it develop as a center for tourism.

With the exception of Giles Corey, who was pressed to death, the following accused wicthes were hanged:

(As many as thirteen** others may have died in prison.)

Jurors and magistrates apologized; restitution was made to the victims' families and a Day of Fasting and Remembrance was instituted. Little is known of the lives of the afflicted girls. Tituba is believed to have been sold and taken out of the Salem Village area. The 300th anniversary of the trials served as an opportunity to bring a sense of reconciliation and an appreciation of the lessons of that time.

REMARKABLE THINGS CONFESSED BY SOME SUSPECTED OF BEING GUILTY OF WITCHCRAFT.

1. It pleased God, for the clearer discovery of those mysteries of the kingdom of darkness, so to dispose, that several persons, men, women, and children, did confess their hellish deeds, as followeth:—

2. They confessed against themselves that they were witches, told how long they had been so, and how it came about that the Devil appeared to them; viz., sometimes upon discontent at their mean condition in the world, sometimes about fine clothes, sometimes for the gratifying other carnal and sensual lusts. Satan then, upon his appearing to them, made them fair (though false) promises, that, if they would yield to him, and sign his book, their desires should be answered to the uttermost, whereupon they signed it; and thus the accursed confederacy was confirmed betwixt them and the Prince of Darkness.

3. Some did affirm that there were some hundreds of the society of witches, considerable companies of whom were affirmed to muster in arms by beat of drum. In time of examinations and trials, they declared that such a man was wont to call them together from all quarters to witch-meetings with the sound of a diabolical trumpet.

4. Being brought to see the prisoners at the bar upon their trials, they did affirm in open court (I was then present), that they had oftentimes seen[ii.536] them at witch-meetings, where was feasting, dancing, and jollity, as also at Devil-sacraments; and particularly that they saw such a man —— amongst the rest of the cursed crew, and affirmed that he did administer the sacrament of Satan to them, encouraging them to go on in their way, and they should certainly prevail. They said also that such a woman —— was a deacon, and served in distributing the diabolical elements: they affirmed that there were great numbers of the witches.

5. They affirmed that many of those wretched souls had been baptized at Newbury Falls, and at several other rivers and ponds; and, as to the manner of administration, the great Officer of Hell took them up by the body, and, putting their heads into the water, said over them, "Thou art mine, I have full power over thee:" and thereupon they engaged and covenanted to renounce God, Christ, their sacred baptism, and the whole way of Gospel salvation, and to use their utmost endeavors to oppose the kingdom of Christ, and to set up and advance the kingdom of Satan.

6. Some, after they had confessed, were very penitent, and did wring their hands, and manifest a distressing sense of what they had done, and were by the mercies of God recovered out of those snares of the kingdom of darkness.

7. Several have confessed against their own mothers, that they were instruments to bring them into the Devil's covenant, to the undoing of them, body and soul; and some girls of eight or nine years of age did declare, that, after they were so betrayed by their mothers to the power of Satan, they saw the Devil go in their own shapes to afflict others.

8. Some of those that confessed were immediately afflicted at a dreadful rate, after the same manner with the other sufferers.

9. Some of them confessed, that they did afflict the sufferers according to the time and manner they were accused thereof; and, being asked what they did to afflict them, some said that they pricked pins into poppets made with rags, wax, and other materials: one that confessed after the signing the death-warrant said she used to afflict them by clutching and pinching her hands together, and wishing in what part and after what manner she would have them afflicted, and it was done.

10. They confessed the design was laid by this witchcraft to root out the interest of Christ in New England, and that they began at the Village in order to settling the kingdom of darkness and the powers thereof; declaring that such a man —— was to be head conjurer, and for his activity in that affair was to be crowned king of hell, and that such a woman —— was to be queen of hell.

Thus I have given my reader a brief and true account of those fearful and amazing operations and intrigues of the Prince of Darkness: and I must call them so; for, let some persons be as incredulous as they please about the powerful and malicious influence of evil angels upon the minds and bodies of mankind, sure I am none that observed those things above mentioned could refer them to any other head than the sovereign permission of the holy God,[ii.537] and the malicious operations of his and our implacable enemy. I have here related nothing more than what was acknowledged to be true by the judges that sat on the bench, and other credible persons there, which I have without prejudice or partiality represented.

I therefore close all with my uncessant prayers, that the great and everlasting Jehovah would, for the sake of his blessed Son, our most glorious intercessor, rebuke Satan, and so vanquish him, from time to time, that his power may be more and more every day suppressed, his kingdom destroyed; and that all his malicious and accursed instruments in those spiritual wickednesses may gnash their teeth, melt away, and be ashamed in their secret places, till they come to be judged and condemned unto the place of everlasting burnings prepared for the Devil and his angels, that they may there be tormented with him for ever and ever.

Salem Bewitched

Tourists know Salem as a mix of important historical sites, New Age and Wiccan boutiques, and kitschy Halloween-witch-themed attractions. Controversy arose in 2005 when TV Land—a cable television network featuring old sitcom re-runs—erected a bronze statue of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played the comic witch "Samantha" in the 1960s series Bewitched. A few special episodes of the series were actually filmed in Salem, and TV Land said that the statue commemorated the 35th anniversary of those episodes.

Bewitched Statue - On Wednesday, June 15, 2005, the folks from the nostalgia cable channel TV Land unveiled a sculpture of the nose-twitching witch, Samantha Stephens from the sitcom BEWITCHED/ABC/1964-72. Located in Lappin Park at the corner of Washington and Essex Streets in the heart of downtown Salem, the 9-foot tall, 3,000 pound statue features the bronze likeness of actress Elizabeth Montgomery (died of cancer in 1995) sitting sidesaddle on a broomstick in front of a crescent moon as her skirt flutters behind in a breeze.

 

Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land, the cable television network said, "'Bewitched' is a timeless series...Today, we're here to honor a character, an actress, and a show that remains close to our hearts."

Among the 1500 in attendance at the ceremony were the show's director William Asher, who was married to Montgomery, and actors from the original series, including Bernard Fox (who played Dr. Bombay), Kasey Rogers (Louise Tate), and Erin Murphy (Tabitha Stephens). Some fans in the crowd wore pointy witch hats and T-shirts with the show's logo.

Not everyone in attendance was "enchanted" when the TV Land executives unveiled the statue of Samantha the Witch amid a puff of smoke. Some felt the timing of the TV LAND statue was just a crass promotional gimmick to coincide with the June 24th release of the movie remake Bewitched (2005) starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. Other critics felt that the erection of the statue in Salem, Massachusetts trivializes the tragic murder of 20 people who were put to death in 1692 after they were falsely accused of witchcraft. Some in the crowd carried signs and banners reading "Tragedy is not a Joking Subject" "Is There no limit to this schlock?", "Shame" and "Elizabeth Who?

Mayor Stanley J. Usovicz Jr. accepted the statue on behalf of Salem. ''We do, in fact, have a great and rich history," Usovicz said. ''And there is more than enough room for contemporary art in modern culture."

The life-sized 'Bewitched' statue was created by Studio EIS, a three-dimensional design and sculpture studio in New York founded by brothers Ivan and Elliot Schwartz. The same studio also created 'The Andy Griffith Show' statue which was unveiled in Raleigh, NC in October 2003 and the statue commemorating Bob Newhart's role as Dr. Robert Hartley on 'The Bob Newhart Show' in July 2004.

On the original BEWITCHED series (set in Westport, Connecticut), Samantha Stephens married a mortal named Darrin Stephens and promised to love, honor and "try" to keep her witch powers in check so she could lead a "normal" life. As much as Sam tried, there were times when she just needed to fall back on her witchcraft to get her husband or herself out of trouble. As Sam would say "Witchcraft got me into this mess, I see no reason why witchcraft can't get me out of it."

Many felt the statue was good fun and appropriate to a city that promotes itself as "The Witch City," and contains a street named "Witch Way." Others objected to the use of public property for what was transparently commercial promotion. Some felt that the statue trivialized history by encouraging visitors to recall a sitcom rather than the tragic Salem witch trials. Local historian John Carr was quoted in Time Magazine as saying "it's like TV Land going to Auschwitz and proposing to erect a statue of Colonel Klink."

Bewitched Fisherman - This famous Gloucester, Massachusetts statue was the focus of an episode on the sitcom BEWITCHED/ABC/1964-72. While Samantha the witch visited the New England area to attend a Witches Convention in historic Salem, her husband Darrin Stephens (Dick Sargent) was enchanted by his mischievous cousin-in-law Serena the witch (Elizabeth Montgomery in a dual role) who turned him into the likeness of a local monument called The Fisherman Statue (official title "The Man at the Wheel"). While Darrin took the place of the statue, Serena gallivanted around town with the reincarnated image of the Fisherman Statue. For the role, Dick Sargent was dressed in a fisherman's raincoat and hat and then sprayed all over with a rusty green color to simulate the weather worn statue.

The real statue upon which the episode was based stands at Stacey Boulevard in the town of Gloucester, Massachusetts. It was created by Leonard Craske in 1923 for a dedication ceremony honoring the town's 300th anniversary. The inscription on the statue reads: "They That Go Down To The Sea in Ships."

The reason why the cast of BEWITCHED traveled to New England was because their Hollywood stage burned down in April 1970. While they rebuilt the show's filming stage the production cast hit the road filming episodes No. 202 "Salem, Here We Come." (aired 10-1-70); No. 203 "The Salem Saga" (aired 10-8-70); No. 204 "Samantha's Hot Bed Warmer" (aired 10-15-70); and the Fisherman's statue episode "No. 205 "Darrin on a Pedestal" (aired 10-22-70).

Protection from Ghost Devils, Witches and all that is evil!

Pentacle Of Protection

The Pentacle or the Pentagram is a 5 pointed star, often, but not always, encircled with the circle of Unity. It represents the domination of Spirit or Divine Will over base matter, and the elements of Spirit, Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The pentacle has been a symbol of protection and spiritual growth for millennia. At its points are the stages of Life: birth, initiation, consummation, repose, and death, with the circle bringing us back to birth in the cycle of reincarnation. Representing the element of Earth in the Tarot, the pentacle is also associated with prosperity and abundance and groundedness. The pentacle is often confused with the pentagram. The pentagram is the mathematical design itself, while a the pentacle is an object in the shape of a pentagram. The paten is a dish for holding cakes and other offerings or for charging material items and often has a pentacle or pentagram inscribed upon it.

This is the ORIGINAL tour created by Spellbound Tours in 2000!

Join supernatural expert Mollie Stewart, for an in-depth look at the tragic events that led to the Witchcraft Trials of Salem, in 1692. Find out what role Voodoo played in the hysteria that allowed 20 innocent victims to be executed. You’ll learn what Voodoo really is and where it is practiced today. These people were falsely accused of practicing witchcraft and “cavorting with Satan”, either by their neighbors or own family members! These accusations became so rampant that eventually over 150 people would be jailed in Salem, under conditions so terrible, that some of them died, before they were to be hung! Did you know that you had to pay for your own food and incarceration? Or that when you were accused of witchcraft, all your property and possessions were seized by the sheriff? You'll discover the use of "poppets" by witches and doll sorcery used in rituals today.

You’ll hear the poignant stories of many of these victims at the Witch Trials Memorial that was dedicated to them in August of 1992, as we walk past each memorial. You’ll hear their last, heroic statements before meeting their dark fates on Gallows Hill…and how the crowd was so moved by the final prayer of one victim, that they almost stopped his execution!

We’ll also visit the Old Burying Point Cemetery, one of the oldest cemeteries in Massachusetts, the site of the true "Witch Dungeon", and where Giles Corey was pressed to death. We’ll look at gravestone artwork and the symbolism of gravestone engravings. You’ll discover the eloquent epitaphs for the dead. You will also learn the offensive “burial” practices for those hung as witches.

Was the witchcraft hysteria a conspiracy born of greed, envy, jealousy and petty squabbles among neighbors? Or was it really the “Devil come to Salem”? Come on this tour and find out the truth!!!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salem is home to the oldest National Historic Site in America, Salem Maritime National Historic Site, which is managed by the National Park Service. Salem Massachusetts was one of the most important ports in the nation prior to the War of 1812, when ships were still small enough to fit into the rather small inner harbor. Lining the downtown are historic buildings, wharves, and the customs house where Nathaniel Hawthorne penned The Scarlet Letter. Other historical tourist attractions include Hawthorne's birthplace, the House of the Seven Gables which inspired Hawthorne's novel of the same name, and a reconstructed late 18th-century warehouse from neighboring Marblehead.

In 2000 the replica tall ship Friendship was finished and sailed to Salem Harbor, where she sits today. The Friendship is a reconstruction of a 171-foot (52 m) three-masted Salem East Indiaman trading ship, originally built in 1797, which traveled the world over a dozen times and returning to Salem after each voyage with goods from all over the world. The original was taken by the British during the War of 1812 then stripped and sold in pieces.

The Peabody Essex Museum is a leading museum of Asian art and culture and early American maritime trade and whaling; its collections of Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese art, and in particular Chinese export porcelain, are among the finest in the country. It is now America's oldest continuously operating museum, having been founded in 1799. The museum owns and exhibits a number of historic houses in downtown Salem. In 2003, it completed a massive renovation and expansion, designed by architect Moshe Safdie, and moved a 200-year-old 16-room Chinese home from Xiuning County in southeastern China to the grounds of the Museum.

The Pioneer Village, created in 1930, was America's first living-history museum. The site features a three-acre, recreated Puritan village, and allows visitors the opportunity to participate in activities from the lives of Salem's earliest English settlers.

Currently as of the summer of 2009 the Old Salem Jail that used to house British Soldiers from the war of 1812 all the way up until 1991 is now under a complete multi-million dollar renovation. When completely finished the Old Salem Jail will be a mixed use development with condos, a dining establishment & small attraction on the history of the Old Salem Jail.

The Essex National Heritage Commission headquartered in Salem, is a non-profit organization chartered to promote tourism and cultural awareness of the area, through such programs as Explorers, Camera Safaris, and the annual Trails and Sails event.

    Perfect Imbalance, Exploring Chinese Aesthetics: PEM Exhibit

Objects included reveal key aesthetic clues that define the art of China, and distinguish it from art produced by neighboring regions, or art made in China for the export market. These aesthetic standards prevailed with the passing of time and foreign influences. Ultimately they are a testament to the power of art. The exhibition features 30 objects that date from the Neolithic era to 2004 in a range of media including paintings, jade, textiles, porcelain and prints. www.pem.org

    In 1692 the Salem Witch Trials wrought havoc on a small New England Community. Relive these events - in their own words! This show takes place in the Nathaniel Hawthorne House, where you will be interrogated by magistrate, John Hathorne, Hawthorne's great-great grandfather, who is infamous for his role in the condemnation and deaths of so many people. From there, encounter the tormented, the accused and their accusers in this interactive theatrical experience. Beware, you may find yourself being accused of "writing in the devil's book!" Performances begin every 10 minutes and last approximately 35 minutes.

    Spirits of the Gables
    Guilt! Greed! Revenge! Enter the world of Nathaniel Hawthorne's burdened characters from his classic The House of the Seven Gables, as they haunt the hallways of their eerie mansion. Witness two families entangled in a curse as Matthew Maule condemns Colonel Pyncheon with the very words destined to become his fate and follow his family for nearly 150 years; "God will give you blood to drink!" Travel through this house at your own risk, for as long as there is a Pyncheon descendant inside, only darkness and death will fill its walls.
    Performances begin every 5 minutes and last approximately 35 minutes. Last performance begins at closing.

    Reservations highly recommended. 978.744.0991 ext. 104. Tickets $15 each or Combination Ticket $27 (Hanging Judge combined with Spirits of the Gables).

    Legacy of the Hanging Judge & Spirits of the Gables
    House of the Seven Gables
    Legacy of the Hanging Judge
    In 1692 the Salem Witch Trials wrought havoc on a small New England Community. Relive these events - in their own words! This show takes place in the Nathaniel Hawthorne House, where you will be interrogated by magistrate, John Hathorne, Hawthorne's great-great grandfather, who is infamous for his role in the condemnation and deaths of so many people. From there, encounter the tormented, the accused and their accusers in this interactive theatrical experience. Beware, you may find yourself being accused of "writing in the devil's book!" Performances begin every 10 minutes and last approximately 35 minutes.

    Spirits of the Gables
    Guilt! Greed! Revenge! Enter the world of Nathaniel Hawthorne's burdened characters from his classic The House of the Seven Gables, as they haunt the hallways of their eerie mansion. Witness two families entangled in a curse as Matthew Maule condemns Colonel Pyncheon with the very words destined to become his fate and follow his family for nearly 150 years; "God will give you blood to drink!" Travel through this house at your own risk, for as long as there is a Pyncheon descendant inside, only darkness and death will fill its walls.
    Performances begin every 5 minutes and last approximately 35 minutes. Last performance begins at closing.

    Reservations highly recommended. 978.744.0991 ext. 104. Tickets $15 each or Combination Ticket $27 (Hanging Judge combined with Spirits of the Gables).

    Salem's Only Authentic Seance
    7pm - 11pm The Hawthorne Hotel on Salem Common. Fourth generation spiritualist medium Jeffrey Justice has proven that spirits are real and that our loved ones speak to us from the other side. With his uncanny ability to communicate with those who have crossed over, Jeffrey has helped thousands make the connection between the living and the dead. Learn how mediumship works, see how spirit can manifest by table-tipping, and hear messages from the departed. Death is not the end but merely a doorway through which we all pass!
