The journey begins at the Witch House, where Judge Jonathan Corwin lived, and ends at a quieter spot, Giles Corey's Grave.

Each stop offers a piece of the puzzle that forms Salem's dark history. While discovering the streets of Salem, guests will experience a mix of emotions, from the eerie feeling at the Witch House to a thoughtful pause at the memorials paying homage to the victims.
