Day 5: Salem

Day five was spent wholly in Salem, Massachusetts, site of the infamous witch trials in 1692. The girls went to the Witch Museum where they learned the truth behind the legends.

Before Facebook, Before Twitter, Before Texting.
It was neighbor against neighbor,
Hearsay, Innuendo and Gossip.
We show you the evidence..You be the judge!
Twenty innocent people were put to death during the Witch Hysteria of 1692.
History made them famous... we make them real!

The girls also saw the lighter side of the witch legends, with a visit to the Samantha statue. 

Another picnic outside, shopping and strolling, a scavenger hunt at the cemetery, and a visit to the House of the Seven Gables, where they met Nathaniel Hawthorne, rounded out the day.
They were hosted in Salem by a troop of Girl Scouts, and in the evening, at a local church, they were treated to a lovely dinner prepared especially for them by the Salem Girl Scout community.

The whole gang with their host troop!
