Haunted History Presentation Coming to Piedmont Crossing

October 11, 2019

Piedmont Crossing is thrilled to welcome Carl Shatley on Thursday, October 31 at 2pm for a presentation on the Salem Witch Trials. The presentation will take place in Unity Place on the campus of Piedmont Crossing, 100 Hedrick Drive in Thomasville.

Many are curious as to why Salem, Massachusetts is so synonymous with Halloween. Salem’s connection to Halloween began with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. Over 200 men, women and children were accused of practicing the “Devil’s Magic” or witchcraft. Since then, the story of the trials has become synonymous with paranoia and injustice.  Shatley will take the audience on a journey looking back over 300 years to find out why so many were accused and died in the name of the law.

Shatley is an accomplished educator, lecturer and artist who holds a holds a Master of Arts degree from Duke University in History and Bachelor of Arts in Art from Greensboro College.

Piedmont Crossing invites you to come sit for a “spell.” To make a reservation to attend, call Blair at 336.474.3605.
