Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near New Hampshire
While in New Hampshire, you might enjoy a visit to:
Eunice "Goody" Cole wasn't burned, but she did have a stake driven through her dead heart. Some 300 years later New Hampshire felt guilty and put a plaque on a rock in her memory.
Captain John Smith, the man who coined the name "New England," gets no respect. His once-impressive monument, erected in 1864, has been reduced to a ruined base with a weather-hammered bronze plaque.
Wax figures in varyingly lurid or titillating basement dioramas chronicle witch history and hysteria across Essex County.
Nineteen witches were hanged on Gallows Hill in 1692. A memorial to their memory was built there in 2017.
