Charter Street Cemetery

History, Witch, Attractions

Charter Street Cemetery is the final resting place for at least two members of the Court of Oyer and Terminer: physician Bartholomew Gedney and magistrate John Hawthorne, who was the great-great grandfather of famous American novelist, Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Located directly behind this cemetery is the Witch Trial Memorial. Open to the public from dawn till dusk, we ask that visitors treat the graves with respect and appreciation due to their age and solemnity.
