Salem women’s history is alive and well and we learn more every day!

While the world may know Salem for the infamous witchcraft trials of 1692, there are dozens more stories to tell about courageous women in Salem history — from abolitionists, suffragists, and educators to writers, artists, philanthropists, preservationists, and business owners — there are hundreds of stories to tell and we learn more every day.

We invite you to learn more about Salem women!
