The Witch House - Jonathan Corwin House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  The Witch House - Jonathan Corwin House

The Witch House, aka Jonathan Corwin House, was the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin and is known for being the only structure still standing in Salem with direct ties to the 1692 Salem witch trials. It was Corwin who investigated the claims of witchcraft after the accusations arose, which resulted in sending 19 folks to death. The house museum is open seasonally and was featured on TV’s Ghost Adventures, where investigators experienced equipment malfunctions, felt a cold breeze and a touch on the arm, and heard a child’s voice.

  1. I’ve visited Salem several times and hadf nothing in this house but it is a 17th century struicture with old creakt beams, small tight little room and dark colors. it is the sort of place that would make us uncomfortable. Add to that the history of the place and it is easy to imagine there is rather more going on.

  2. I’ve only visited once, but was unaware at the time that there were rumors of anything paranormal about this place. My girlfriend kept getting weird vibes in one of the upstairs bedrooms, and she stated it several times while we were in the room. We later found out that this was the area of the house that has been claimed to have the paranormal activity. So, I don’t know maybe there’s something going on there, but not sure.
