The Mary Barnes Society

THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-NINE 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 marked the anniversary of her hanging with a series of online presentations in 2021 on the Museum’s YouTube channel, followed by a Zoom panel discussion (prerecorded).
