How many times have you visited Salem: October 2014 will be my third time this year, but I believe about 5 or 6 times in total.
Why did you originally visit Salem? Educational trip with dad when I was 11 or 12
What draws you back? I’m obsessed with the Witch Trials time in history, I always get more inspired when I’m in Salem, and now that I know I have ancestors that lived here, I’m obsessed with finding out as much as I can.
What is your favorite season in Salem? Every season, but winter... Spring and summer are the perfect times to do research, and it’s beautiful in the fall.
What is the funniest thing you have seen in Salem? The reaction when I tell people who my ancestors are on my mom’s side.
Is there one thing you do on every visit? Visit Danvers, and at least one museum/tour, even if I’ve done it before.
Do you have a favorite Salem souvenir? The photos I took at Salem Vintage Photography. I’m hoping to get some cool souvenirs in October.
Salem has changed a lot over the years…
What is your favorite change? Nothing has changed, at least that I’ve seen.
