Author Christopher Penczak, co-founder of the Temple of Witchcraft in Salem, NH, says the group will host rituals, ceremonies and classes. The new location offered the Temple the opportunity to work in a natural, forested setting. City officials say all zoning requirements are being met, and proper plans were approved by the city.
The group has a total of about 200 members locally, as well as a few hundred globally.
One neighbor said, "You don't want them casting any spells over here or anything but I mean they seem like normal people." So at least there's hope that everyone will be able to get along.
