Witches in Connecticut

November 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

In partnership with the Connecticut Historical Society and Avery-Copp House, NLCHS is pleased to host Witches in Connecticut, a traveling presentation about those who were tried for witchcraft in Connecticut at the Shaw Mansion on November 16th at 5PM. Our spots are all reserved, please email info@nlchs.org to put your name on a wait list. 

The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in Connecticut predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years. Hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried, and executed as witches and learn how Connecticut successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence.
