The story of the Salem witch trials doesn’t begin in Salem, but in what was known at the time as Salem Village, a few miles away. Today it’s called Danvers, a town not wanting recognition for it’s macabre past. There are still reminders of that era, and the best preserved is likely the Rebecca Nurse Homestead.
Rebecca was a pious, God-fearing woman caught up in the hysteria. It’s said that her death was one of the turning points, which led to an end of the madness, but not before twenty women and one man perished in that dark stain on American history. It is believed that Rebecca’s body was recovered from the shallow grave which she was buried in at Salem following her hanging, by her family working under the cover of night. It’s thought they brought her home to be buried, where she lies still in secret.
