Description

SV190 — Nelson Dionne Collection. View of the Witch House in Salem, Mass., at the corners of North Street and Essex St. (from North St.) as it looking during the early 20th century, when it served as a tourist destination with a drug store (operated at that point by Upton & Frisbee). Touted as the home of the presiding Judge Jonathan Corwin during the 1692 Witch Trials, and also (since-disproven) as the home of Roger Williams during his time in Salem.

Published by the Keystone View Company, 1926. Photographed by Henry Peabody, 1920.

Includes a back with detailed description.

View is a duplicate of SV183 and SV184.
