Excerpt from Salem, Beverly, Danvers and Peabody: Thier Representative Business Men and Points of Interest

The most important dates in the history of Salem are 1626, when the first settlement was made within the present city limits; 1628, when the Colony of the Massachusetts Bay in New England was formally established by the arrival of Governor John Endicott; 1692, when the witchcraft delusion overcame the community; 1775, when was shed the first blood of the American Revolution, and 1836, when a city charter was granted. But the history of this, the second oldest city in Massachusetts. - a city whose origin was due to an unconquerable desire on the part of its founders for freedom, whose early development was persisted in in spite of most adverse conditions, and whose progress was so energetically and ably urged that the name of Salem was most honorably known in every part of the world when this nation was in its infancy, - such a city must have a history so eventful and interesting that every day which passes is the anniversary of some important event in it.

And such is the case with Salem. Each year it is visited by thousands, - without reference to the many who come on business errands, - and although the great interest of the public in this city is largely due to its having been the birthplace and home of the greatest American romancer and the scene of some of his most powerful stories, yet Salem would offer attractions to many visitors even if Nathaniel Hawthorne had not been one of her illustrious sons, for no student of history would think of neglecting an opportunity to visit the famous "Witch City." Some Salem people seriously object to that name and also object to the erection of a memorial on Gallows Hill, where the supposed witches of 1692 were executed. Their objections are based upon the belief that the witch episode in Salem's history has given that city a disagreeable notoriety and hence should not be commemorated by name or by monument.
