“Sanderson Sisters Cottage”

This is the filming location for the Sanderson Sisters cottage in the movie Hocus Pocus. 

Pioneer Village, also known as Salem 1630: Pioneer Village, was created in 1930 as the set for a play, held in Forest River Park in Salem, Massachusetts. Audience members sat in the park and watched the re-creation of what Salem, Massachusetts may have looked like in June, 1630 upon the arrival of John Winthrop and the families of Thomas Dudley and Simon Bradstreet, including America's first published poet of significance, Anne Bradstreet, daughter of Thomas and wife of Simon. The set was meant to be temporary, but the City of Salem and all of Essex County, Massachusetts had fallen in love with it so it was saved from re-development. Salem Pioneer Village, is one of the first living history museum in the United States, opened in June, 1930. Visitors could gain an appreciation for the spirit of these English settlers as they could imagine their lives. Rather than simply read about them, one could see in action a blacksmith’s shop, a sawmill, a saltworks, gardens, fireplaces, a Dugout, a Wigwam, and thatched roof cottages. The featured attraction was the Governor’s House, a “fayre house” representing what the house might have looked like after it had been disassembled in Cape Ann, brought over to Salem, and rebuilt for Governor John Endicott in 1628. Dimensional details for the replica had been worked out by George Francis Dow.

Do not be fooled by this address! It is NOT on Essex St.! It's in Forest River Park. The entire location is fenced off and is only open during certain hours of the day.
