I hope we can go back there again soon! Very cool. My Mom lives in Salem, MA and loves it. So many cool and spooky places to visit. I actually have ancestors from the Salem Witch trials and am currently starting a screenplay on another aspect of the trials. The witch hysteria had a lasting effect on the United States. During , there were about inhabitants in Salem Village and eventually of them were accused — mostly by disturbed young girls wanting to stand in the spotlight, and by landowners hoping to grab the land of the accused.

We met an awesome tour guide mentioned it in my first post on Salem who told us the same theory on the witch trials. So interesting that you have an ancestor from that part of history. Make it a replica of the one in the movie, during October they could have hayrides that lead to it, maybe have a showing of the movie. I agree! It would be a great tourist attraction.
That is so cool that you got to see the props in Chicago. As the first licensed tour guide in Salem and as my namesake arrived in Dec with Roger Williams, I have always been interested in the actual history of the city. Salem was destined to be the capital but when the Arbella arrived with Gov. Winthrop the same day his son Henry attempted to swim across the North River to an Indian village where a junk yard soon to become new condos resides and drowned.

I love that it plays on T. Anyway, just wanted to say how much the film means to me. It was a really fun trip to Salem and made us feel like kids again to see all those iconic locations. Thanks for making one of my favourite childhood movies so magical. I love catching it on TV every year too. How fun for you Mr. Sandell, my youngest daughter was born the year HP came out. Actually I think we thought they were just stages somewhere else. So glad you posted here. And I hope the rumors of a HP 2 are true and you can be involved for more fun!
My Mom and Dad still live in the house and are 87 and 91 years old, respectively. In October the number of visitors gets so large that they almost need crowd control personnel. The movie is obviously a favorite of many people. We all my family remember you fondly.

I specifically remember how much you loved New England and that, shortly after you left, we were experiencing a hurricane and you called us to see if we were okay. I am so glad that your memories of making the movie are as happy as ours are. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. Hi Patti! I guess I take for granted what is in my backyard. I go into salem every year for Halloween to check out the cool costumes. Loved the movie! It was such a sight to see it all done up for Halloween — so fun!
I remember them doing the filming of Hocus, Pocus and loved the movie. I am looking forward to returning to visit someday to see my hometown. Thank you for posting this and I am so grateful for having this to read and reminisce. We thought it was such a charming town and I can see why you loved it. I grew up in Lynn which is right next door to Salem.
