“A must see”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

As a lover of history I love walking through old cemeteries and reading the old headstones and about the people buried there. Very old heastones from the 17th century worth looking at. Only problem is people need to remember they are still in a cemetery and need to respect. Kids climbing on headstones and people leaving garbage there.

“Must Visit”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We visit this cemetery every year. Its free to the public and holds a ton of Salem History. The best part this year was visiting the cemetery during our "Bewitched in Salem" walking tour. The tour guide had so much information and pointed out many tombstones and stories that we otherwise would never have known about.

“Great old cemetery”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Wonderful old tombstones and very peaceful despite being in the center of town. We were interested in finding the grave site of Judge Hathorne of the infamous witch trials.

“Wrong”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I recently visited d this graveyard, right around sunset. I was so completely uncomfortable. It felt as if there was anger everywhere. the stones were all kinds of broken. Some looked as if kids had taken a bat to them. I felt the whole place was completely disrespected. You were not sure if you were walking over dead bodies or not. People walked all over, liked they didn't even realize there were dead bodies laying 7 feet or less underneath them. this place should be blocked off. It's not a safe idea.

“Needs more respect”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Just because its an old cemetery, and local attraction does not mean anyone needs to be disrespectful. People were sitting on stones, there were papers strewn about.... which quite honestly did not give a good impression. I think people need to be more respectful. I also think maybe someone should look over the area during their peak season. I personally am not happy with the attention it is not receiving... and I don't even live there.
