Meeting Place & Parking

Private tours and seasonal public tours meet near the Salem Common War Memorial (image, right), near the corner of South Washington Square and Hawthorne Blvd, unless otherwise arranged. If you want to drop off the rest of your party before you park, we recommend doing so near this intersection.

ReadSalem‘s starting point for Spring 2022 is the Witch Trials Memorial in Salem, just off of Charter Street, near Liberty Street.

Nearby there is a Parking Garage (shaded with green lines on map) or the Church Street parking lot (shaded with purple lines on map) a short distance from the Common. See parking map here.


Your guide is fully vaccinated and boostered against COVID-19 and will follow all federal, state, and local guidelines regarding the virus.

Salem does not currently require masks indoors, but individual businesses might. I recommend bringing a mask to Salem. COVID updates from the city of Salem can be found on Destination Salem.

Free, walk-in rapid COVID tests are available in downtown Salem. Please visit this site for more information.
