Connecticut Witch Trial Exoneration Project

We are a project aimed at clearing the names of those wrongfully accused of witchcraft in Connecticut through legislation and establishing a permanent memorial to the victims of the witch trials.

A witch being hanged

The accused

  • At least 46 people were accused of witchcraft in colonial Connecticut. Of these, at least 11 were hanged. Due to the incompleteness of records, the true toll cannot yet be established.

The project

  • We are a group of volunteers.
  • We work with legislators and other leaders to promote our goals.
  • We are working for a formal declaration of the innocence of all accused of witchcraft.
  • We are working for a permanent memorial to all victims of the witch trials in Connecticut.
