The Gordon College Institute for Public History unites and expands the offerings of two longstanding entities—History Alive! and the Museum Studies curriculum of our history department. The Institute for Public History oversees the tenancy at two historic properties. Pioneer Village and Salem Old Town Hall. While Salem is infamous for its 1692 witchcraft ordeal, the city also plays an important role in American religious, cultural and social history. Through the work of the Institute for Public History in Salem, visitors engage the riches of the city's history. The goal of the Institute is to bring such the history of Salem to life in engaging and memorable ways.
