Rochester, Massachusetts: Witch Rock

A witch's cackle can supposedly be heard coming out of cracks in the rock. It's a big rock, so it's possible that a witch could be in there....
1 Vaughn Hill Rd, Rochester, MA
I-195 exit 19B. Drive north on North St. for several miles until it ends at New Bedford Rd. Turn right. The rock is just up the road, tucked under some trees, on the north side of New Bedford Rd just as it intersects Vaughan Hill Rd.
Private property.

Witch Rock

Large ivy-covered rock with witch painting. Said to have witch's laughter coming out of cracks in rock. Supposedly site of the murder of a Salem woman who escaped the witch trials.
