Explore This! Salem, Massachusetts

I’ve had the pleasure of reading a couple of Nathaniel Hawthorne short stories this year through two of my university courses, The Birthmark and most recently, Young Goodman Brown. This got me thinking about Salem, Massachusetts…and of course what it is most famous for.
