Three hundred years after the Witch Trials we explore the lessons learned, its effect on our country and the evolution of tolerance. Starting at the Witch Trials Memorial, continuing to the Quaker Meeting House at the PEM and then a walk through the McIntire District to Maule’s Well and the Quaker “Friend’s Burial Ground” on Essex Street. This 90-minute tour will be outside on city sidewalks.
