I know this event is quite a ways out but with so many things being postponed or cancelled due to the Coronavirus I wanted to add events that are (fingers crossed) less likely to be moved. The Winter Solstice event is on the calendar again this year for December 20, 2020 at The Witch House from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. The Witch House is located at 310 1/2 Essex St. Salem, MA 01970. Details are per the House’s website.
About The Witch House
“The Jonathan Corwin House in Salem, Massachusetts, USA, known as The Witch House, was the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin (1640–1718) and is the only structure still standing in Salem with direct ties to the Salem witch trials of 1692.
In 1675, Jonathan Corwin, heir to one of the largest Puritan fortunes in New England, purchased this large and stately house. Seventeen years later, Corwin and his family would take part in the most famous Witch Hunt in American History.
Tours of the Corwin House, now known as the Witch House, connect elements of everyday life with the events punctuating history’s timelines.
Through examination of family life, architecture and furniture of the seventeenth century, visitors gain a deeper comprehension of the people involved in the Witch Trials and an enriched understanding of America’s colonial heritage.”
