Witches in Connecticut

Thursday, October 20 at 6 PM

Registration required.

The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in Connecticut predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years.

Join us for a program by the Connecticut Historical Society! Hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried, and executed as witches and learn how Connecticut successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence.

Funded by a donation from the Foster Family for programs about colonial & revolutionary times.
