The most famous witch trials took place in 1692 in Salem Village (now Danvers) in the colony of Massachusetts. But they were hardly the only ones. By one count, there were 234 indictments or legal complaints of witchcraft in New England in the 17th century, resulting in 36 executions. In all the other colonies during the same period, there were only a few trials and suits for slander, and no executions. The hunt for witches was almost exclusively a New England phenomenon.
