Andover Witch Hunt with Richard Hite (Virtual)

September 30, 2020 @ 7:30 pm

The 1692 Salem Witchcraft Trials resulted in the executions of 20 innocent people and as many as 200 people were accused. A fact that many do not realize is that Andover, a town just 20 miles northwest of Salem, had more accusations of witchcraft than any other town caught up in the hysteria.

A total of 45 people were accused including Martha Carrier, who was executed, and Ann Foster, who died in jail. Many more were jailed and admitted to being witches. One claimed there were over 300 witches.

Join Richard Hite, author of the book “In The Shadow of Salem,” for a discussion of what was happening in Andover on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $10.
This will be a live, interactive discussion with the use of pre-recorded videos of selected sites in Andover as well as screen shares and virtual background.
