A Day Trip to Salem, MA  

Founded in 1626, Salem’s early history was clouded by religious intolerance that led to the witchcraft trials of 1692. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it developed as one of New England’s leading maritime and shipbuilding centers, and during the American Revolution and the War of 1812 its port served as a privateers’ base. At its peak between 1776 and 1812, Salem was the busiest trading port and the 6th largest city in the U.S.PEM            Yin Yu Tang
