History, Witch, Attractions
Brothers, George Corwin, High Sheriff of Essex County in 1692, and Jonathon Corwin, a Salem merchant who lived in the “Witch House” when he served as magistrate during the trials, are both buried in the Broad Street Cemetery. A white obelisk marks their grave.
Broad Street is open to the public from dawn to dusk. We ask visitors to treat the graves with respect and appreciation for their age and solemnity.
