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

Located directly behind this cemetery is the Witch Trials 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.
