Excuse the mess!

The dustbunnies have had the run of the place far too long, so
Two Bubbles is undergoing a long overdue makeover. Hence, the
posts on the Gatchells' journey from Weymouth to Massachusetts
and their lives there will sink from view into Older Posts,
so if you've a mind to read them again, a synopsis with
links to all of them is about halfway down the righthand
column under "On the 8th day, God created Marblehead".

Apologies for any confusion.

Salem's Witch House

>> Thursday, January 14, 2010

At left, the house known as "the Witch's House" due to Jonathan Corwin and son George's involvement in the witch trials.

According to Historic Salem, Inc., it was built in 1672 by Capt. Nathaniel Davenport of Boston, then purchased only partially completed in 1675 by Jonathan Corwin for himself and his family.

In 1944, it was saved from demolition by the formation of Historic Salem, Inc. and "moved west" from its original location at 312 Essex to 310 1/2 Essex, the NW corner of Essex and North streets.
