Salem was a city located in Essex County in the state of Massachusetts in the United States of America.[1]

From 1692 to 1693, a series of No-Maj witch trials were carried out in the then-colonial settlement of Salem, ultimately resulting in the executions of several innocent people (both magical and non-magical).[2][3] The Salem witch trials were a major traumatic event in the history the wizarding world.[2]

The 6 December 1926 morning edition of The New York Ghost featured a story about Scourer descendants in Salem facing a "magical identity crisis," including one who considered their family's Scourer heritage to be a "blight," and was striving to achieve freedom from "magical shackles."[4]

Salem may have also been the location of the headquarters of the Salem Witches' Institute.[5][6]
