Rebecca Nurse- 320 Years Later
On July 14 the Rebecca Nurse Homestead will be commemorating the 320th anniversary of the death of beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, Rebecca Nurse. Wrongfully accused and executed for practicing witchcraft on July 19, 1692. All day long our tours of the property will focus more than ever on her life as well as the events leading up to her tragic death.
At 3PM we will have a small ceremony which will include words from the minister of the First Church of Danvers. All are welcome.
Tours will be given on the hour (10-2) and will be our usual price (Adults $7, Seniors $5, Children 6-16 $4).
The ceremony at 3 PM will be free to the public though donations towards the Nurse Homestead are welcome.
More About Rebecca Nurse Homestead
The Rebecca Nurse Homestead is a private non-profit museum owned by the Danvers Alarm List Coy and is run by volunteer living history re-enactors. Situated on more than 25 acres of 300 acres once occupied by Rebecca Nurse and her family from 1678 to 1798, the Rebecca Nurse Homestead offers the public demonstrations, exhibitions, parades, living history encampments and battle reenactments. The property also features a reproduction of the 1672 Salem Village Meeting House, the Nurse family cemetery and the traditional salt-box home lived in by the Nurse Family, the only home of a person executed during the trials open to the public.
