Charter Street Cemetery/Old Burying Point

Landmarks, Museums & Attractions

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.

Please note: Charter Street Cemetery will be closed for restoration work June 1-October 2020 for landscape restoration and improvements. Visit preservingsalem.com for more information.
