By special arrangement with the American Humanist Association, SkepTours’ Jeff Wagg will be leading a tour to the site of the infamous “Witch Hysteria” of 1692. This trip is only available for attendees of the American Humanist Association’s 70th Annual Conference in Cambridge, MA.
We’ve arranged a special private tour of the Rebecca Nurse homestead in Danvers (Salem Village). This historic structure was the home of one of the accused.
Jeff grew up in Salem in the Witchcraft Heights section of the city and has an insider’s viewpoint of the tragedy and its aftermath.
From the AHA:
Join fellow conference attendees for a bus trip to Salem, Massachusetts to explore the history of the “witch hysteria” and the role religious belief played in it. Your tour guide, Jeff Wagg, is the owner of SkepTours, an agency based in Boston which organizes tours geared toward skeptics and freethinkers. Participants will be picked up at the hotel at 1:00pm on Sunday, April 10 after the conference (boxed lunch provided) and visit key sites in Salem, including The Witch House, The House of Seven Gables, Gallows Hill, the Witch Hysteria Memorial, and others. The cost is $89 per person and includes transportation, admission to sites, a boxed lunch, and a copy of the House of Seven Gables or The Crucible. This tour is limited to 50 guests, so sign up early!
