Online Coffee Hour with CHS: Witches in Connecticut

October 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Free
Connecticut Historical Society Hartford, CT United States

The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in Connecticut predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years. Join CHS staff online via Zoom to hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried, and executed as witches. You’ll learn how Connecticut successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence.

We’re offering this program for free, but we’d appreciate it if you’d make a $6 donation to support public programs at CHS!

When you register, you will get an email with an attached receipt from Yapsody with the Zoom link in it. We will also send you a reminder with the link at noon on the day of the program.
