Amesbury

Site of Susannah Martin's House
36. Site of Susannah Martin's House
(Plate 20; marker located at the end of Martin Road, which intersects with Route 110 about one-half mile west of the intersection of Routes 110 and 150).

Susannah Martin's house stood on this site in 1692. She was examined in Salem Village on May 2, tried for witchcraft on June 29, and hanged, on Gallows Hill on July 19. Cotton Mather called her one of the most "Impudent, Scurrilous, wicked creatures in the world". The marker in Amesbury, however, claims that she was an honest, hard working Christian woman.
