Home of Judge Jonathan Corwin who conducted the infamous witch trials of Salem of 1692, it is the only structure still standing in the city with direct ties to the trials. A dark domineering presence lingers and with it scents of 

Leather, Incense, and Smoke.

Haunted History

Located in Salem, Massachusetts built sometime between 1620-1642. In 1675 Judge Jonathan Corwin bought the property. The house is the only remaining structure related to the trials.

Judge Corwin was among several judges directly presiding over the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Rumor states that they interview accused witches and perform examinations in the parlor. The trials resulted in 20 people being executed and 7 died in prison awaiting trial, one was the newborn of Sarah Good who was hanged after the baby died. 

Staff and visitors have heard whispering, banging of a gavel, woman's screams, and a small child crying. The ghost of another Judge of the trials, Jonathan Hathorne who is buried at nearby Old Burying Point Cemetery has been seen walking between the house and the cemetery. 

Jonathan and his wife lost 7 of their 10 children as infants. Only 3 survived into adulthood, giving rise to the “Corwin Curse”. Many believed the witches cursed his family thus setting the stage for the 1692 trials.

All candles are made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fragrance oils, and organic cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never tested on animals.

How to use

Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:

Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.

Never attempt to trim a burning candle.

Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.

The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.

Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.


Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:

Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.

Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.

Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.

Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
