This cemetery has some really well preserved grave stones, and a few reference markers so you can locate some of the more noteworthy ones. It's located in the center of town, next to the Witch Trials Memorial, and easy to find.

A short stop was all that we needed, but as with all cemeteries there was an eerie feel to some of the areas. Rather well maintained for an old cemetery in a town that did not see the value in preserving its historical landmarks.

This is a very basic old cemetery with a few people of note. For the brief walk through it was interesting but I wouldn't go out of my was to see this.

This is one of the better stops to make. Looking back in time at an era long gone. This area of town should not be missed.

A peaceful place and the history surrounds you. No trip to Salem is complete without visiting here. Just reading the names and dates will give you a sense of your own insignificance.

We visited once on our own, and then later in the day with a guided tour. We got a lot of information from the guided tour and found the stories to be very interesting.

this cemetery is very interesting, but best to have a tour guide along to describe all of the important deceased that are buried there.

This is a very interesting place to wander around for a few minutes. Seeing the graves dating back to the 1600's gives a glimpse back through time and an appreciation for the history of the area. There were some people dressed in period-style attire who were happy to answer questions and provide a little historical context.
