House tied to 1692 Salem witch trials rises from near ruin

In this Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017, photo, old wood is exposed in a wall inside the 17th-century homestead where Sarah Clayes lived in Framingham, Mass., after leaving Salem following the 1692 witch trials. After years-long efforts to figure out who owned the home, which had fallen into disrepair after decades of neglect, and to raise enough money to fix it, renovations are expected to be completed by the spring of 2018.
