Salem, Mass. Town Travel Business Vacation & Relocation Information

The well-known North Shore community of Salem, Massachusetts is located on Salem Bay, only 16 miles north of Boston. Salem State College, the Essex County District Superior and Probate Courts, Peabody and Essex Museum and many other facilities make their home in Salem. The hub of the North Shore, Salem is a thriving town. Salem is most well known for the infamous Salem Witch Trials held through the spring and summer of 1692. By the end of summer, 180 people had been accused of witchcraft. Those people were left defenseless against the accusations and were either imprisoned or killed. The Salem Witch Museum takes you back to 1692 and uses life-size figures, amazing lighting, and narration to recreate this dramatic historical event.
