In this episode, Robyn interviews Melissa Nierman, Founder of NOW Age Travel in Salem. Melissa leads NOW Age Walking Tours: Ghosts of Buildings Past, History of Spiritualism, and Witches: 1692-Today.
Robyn & Melissa get back together to chat with new Salem Ward 2 Councilor, Christine Madore. The three discuss one of Salem’s recent heroes, Ada Louise Huxtable, and her ability to save Salem from becoming a major highway.
Robyn from Creative Salem/Collective and Melissa from Now Age Travel take a fresh approach to women’s history in Salem. More than a city of witches, Salem has always had a history of bold women shaping the area for famous, infamous, and lesser-known happenings.
