Located at the Naumkeag River, Salem is a coastal city in Essex County of Massachusetts. This city brings along a very mystical history as it is here that the infamous Salem Witch Trials were conducted in 1692. The incident is so deeply etched in the history of the city that the Witch logos can be seen all over the city. The Witch House is a famous and eery destination for tourists. And so is the House of Seven Gables that gave birth to a novel of the same name by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
