THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO, ON JANUARY 25, 1663, MARY BARNES OF FARMINGTON WAS HANGED AS A WITCH ON GALLOWS HILL IN HARTFORD.

The Mary Barnes Society at Stanley-Whitman House will mark the 358th anniversary of her hanging by premiering a series of online presentations on the Museum’s YouTube channel from January 22-25 followed by a Zoom panel discussion (prerecorded) and a Zoom reception (live).

Happy 300th Birthday, S-WH!
