Additional Details:
The Court House in which the trials for "Witchcraft" took place was erected for a town house in 1675 in the middle of Washington Street, in front of the Kinsman block. Opposite the site of that old court house on the western side of the street is a bronze tablet with an inscription telling of the "Witchcraft" trials and condemnations of that period
