Salem
Сейлем. Ныне Danvers — Данверс, поселок в штате Массачусетс, где в конце XVII в. устраивались судебные процессы над «ведьмами» (отсюда его прозвище Witch City).
Сейлем, город в штате Массачусетс.
A county seat of Essex County, on a peninsula in Massachusetts Bay. Next to Plymouth, it is the oldest town in the state. Became notorious in connection with the witchcraft delusion of 1692. Excitement over witches spread to the jcolonies, and before the ministers and magistrates came to their senses, 19 people were hanged and hundreds were imprisoned (hence its nickname the Witch City). During the War for Independence it was a major center for privateers. At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century it was famous for its commerce with the Orient. It was the birthplace of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Now it has manufactures of cotton goods, radio tubes and shoes. For many tourists it is still an old colonial town. Among its places of interest is the 'Mouse of Seven Gables", an eighteenth century house (with a secret staircase) made famous by Nathaniel Hawthorne's story; contains memorabilia of the author.
