This section contains descriptions of the sites from the witchcraft hysteria
which can still be seen today. With few exceptions, only original houses
or foundations, gravesites, and sites indicated by historic markers
have been included. Sites lacking either physical remains or any historic
marker have generally been omitted. Except where otherwise noted, all
gravesites mentioned are marked. Following each site is a short description
of its relevance to the witchcraft events. Each site has been assigned
a number which identifies it in both the map and historical sections.
