Have you ever wondered why some people escaped accusation during the Salem witch trials? Join Curator Kelly Daniell as she explores this question through the lens of the Felton family of Peabody. The Feltons lived in what was then Salem Village, and managed to escape 1692 unscathed. They even tried to help their accused neighbors, the Proctors, and Rebecca Nurse. The experience of the Felton family sheds new light on the well known events of that fateful year.
