 What will YOU see at Gallows Hill?

Our FIVE STAR main event: The  Witchcraft & Ghost Experience, runs daily in October and is the must see event at Gallows Hill.
All other special events are listed below, or in the navigation bar.

Gallows Hill (formerly called The Witches Cottage) is owned and operated by local celebrity Erik Rodenhiser and offers the same
experience that returning visitors have come to love.
Be sure to visit our mini-museum in the lobby! Wall portraits come to life, with information on Salem witchcraft history and mythology.  You also find Sheriff Corwin, the infamous sheriff of the witch trials, and an old witch from the mythological world of witchcraft.
Perfect for picture taking!
