SALEM, Mass. (AP) — Officials in the Massachusetts town best known for its 17th century witch trials are taking a closer look at the planned opening of Satanic Temple’s relocated international headquarters there this week.

The new headquarters in the town of Salem is an old Victorian mansion that once served as a funeral parlor and sits around the corner from an elementary school.

The Satanic Temple is a recognized religious organization. Spokesman Lucien Greaves says the Temple “isn’t an attack on anybody” and stressed that members won’t be going door to door or affecting neighbors’ lives in any way.

Salem officials say they are currently working to better understand the temple’s intended use.
