Most People Don’t Know A Witch Trial Took Place Right Here In Arizona

What images come to mind when you think of witches? Perhaps misty evenings, black cats, green skin, and a hooked nose? What about where witches live? It seems that in American history, witches tend to be remembered only in Salem, Massachusetts. However, did you know Arizona had its own small witch trial? That’s right and it even happened in the not-too-distant past.

That was pretty crazy, huh? What other strange events do you know of that have taken place here in Arizona?

If you want to read about another little-known event in Arizona history, I would suggest reading about the Camp Grant Massacre in This Place In Arizona Has A Dark And Evil History That Will Never Be Forgotten.
