Howard Street Cemetery

History, Witch, Attractions

One of three cemeteries significant to the 1692 Witch Trials, the Howard Street Cemetery is said to be where Giles Corey was taken to be pressed to death, a torture chosen because he refused to stand trial.

This cemetery is open to the public from dusk to dawn. We ask that visitors treat the graves with respect and appreciation for their age and solemnity.
