Of more than a score of witchy attractions in town, this is the only actual historic site. The house was once the home of Jonathan Corwin, a local magistrate who was called on to investigate witchcraft claims. He examined several accused witches, possibly in the 1st-floor rooms of this house. The house demonstrates the family's daily life at the time of the witch hysteria, providing historical context for the episode. Open longer hours in October.
