The Rebecca Nurse Homestead

About:

The Nurse Homestead was originally part of a 300- acre grant given to Townsend Bishop in 1636. Francis Nurse rented the property in 1678, and purchased in 1698. 71-year-old Rebecca Nurse, wife of Francis

, was a victim of the Salem Witch Trials. On March 23, the village constables arrested Rebecca. She was found guilty of witchcraft and hanged on July 19. After the execution, Rebecca’s children secretly removed their mother’s body to the homestead and buried it in an unmarked grave.

In 1775, Rebecca’s great-grandson Francis occupied the house. He was a sergeant in Captain John Putnam’s Militia Company, which was to be ready to march with- in a few minutes notice in case of trouble. On April 19, 1775, Nurse received the news that British troops were marching on Concord, and headed off with the rest of the Danvers men.
