Event tags:

Description:

Discover the strange but true history of witchcraft in Pennsylvania. Since William Penn presided over the state’s only official witch trial in 1684, witchcraft and folk magic have been a part of the history of the Keystone state. English and German settlers brought their beliefs in magic with them from the Old World—sometimes with dangerous consequences. Join folklorist Thomas White as he traces the history and lore of witchcraft and the occult that quietly live on in Pennsylvania even today.
