Gallows Hill

The execution site of those condemned
as witches in the infamous witch trails in Salem, Massachusetts.
Gallows Hill has been believed to be haunted
ever since the trials in 1692–93. Nineteen men and
women were hanged from the trees at Gallows Hill. The
site was long considered the meeting grounds for witches
at annual sabbats. It also was oracular: young persons
who wished to know their future in marriage, and the
identities of their future spouses, would go to Gallows
Hill at night and listen for the answers to be revealed to
them by the ghosts of the dead witches. Whenever an
important event was about to happen, the neighborhood
would be filled with the screechings and screamings of
the haunting witches (see ghosts, hauntings and
witchcraft). Gallows Hill is now a residential area
