Old Burying Point/Charter Street Cemetery


Salem’s oldest cemetery, founded in 1637, and final resting place for several notable Salem residents.

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.

Old Burying Point may be closed for extended periods of time in 2018 for improvements, check this page or visit PreservingSalem.com for updates.
