About

Join us on August 8th at 2pm, the last Sunday of Heritage Days, for a special book signing, talk, and Q&A with Daniel Fury for his new book, “If These Stones Could Speak: The History and People of The Old Salem Burying Point”, at the new Charter Street Welcome Center.

This book is the culmination of over a decade of research into Old Burying Point, one of, if not the oldest, maintained Colonial cemetery in the United States. It is a record of the lives and loves of those who rest there eternally, as well as the history of the site, intimate details of funerals in old Salem, an index of all known burials, and information about the people victimized by the Salem Witch Hysteria and the Memorial erected in their honor.
Daniel Fury is a resident of Salem, owner and operator of Black Cat Tours, and co-author of Black Cat Tales: History and Hauntings of Old Salem.
Books will be available for purchase on site. We hope you can join us!
