Old Burying Point Cemetery Reviews & Ratings

  • This is one of the oldest cemeteries in the US (dates back to the 1600s) and I wish it was cared for better. Many of the tombstones have been damaged, vandalized, and stolen. It's interesting to see the designs on the tombstones (I enjoyed the ones from the 1700s the most) and imagine what life was like for these people that lived there in an era so foreign to us. The Salem Witch Trials Memorial is right beside the cemetery. Come see both.

  • My 9th Great Grandfather is buried here along with my 9th Great Grandmother. Capt Richard More and Christina. I go to the cemetery whenever I am in the area and leave flowers.

  • Eerie experience woth all the old Graves and worn-out tombstones.. Definitely fits in with a trip to Salem

  • It's a very interesting place to check out for yourself..

  • Great old cemetery with many historical figures in there related to the witch trials and the history of Salem. There is actually someone that was on the Mayflower buried there, too. Salem was fun to visit in October.
