PEABODY, Mass. — A house where a vic­tim of the Salem witch tri­als once lived is on the mar­ket for $600,000 just in time for Halloween. The nearly 4,000-sq.-foot home built in 1638 was once the home of John Proc­tor, who was convicted of witch­craft and hanged in 1692. The six-bed­room, two-bath­room home is in Peabody, Mass., which at the time was part of Salem. Real es­tate agent Joe Cipo­letta of J. Bar­rett and Co. said some parts of the orig­i­nal struc­ture, in­clud­ing wooden beams, are still vis­i­ble. It has been mod­ern­ized and in­cludes an in-ground pool. The home’s owner died ear­lier this month. Michael Bon­fanti, vice-pres­i­dent of the Peabody His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, tells The Salem News the or­ga­ni­za­tion is look­ing into whether it’s fea­si­ble to pur­chase the home and make it a pub­lic re­source.
