The Burying Point
Salem is always an interesting walk around…although I would suggest you wait until after the “Halloween festivities” have ended. One of the most interesting spots is The Burying point . It is the oldest burial ground in the city of Salem and the final resting place for many from a dark chapter in Salem’s history. It’s the home to at least one accused witch, Mary Corey, a sinister player in the Salem Witch Trials. Also buried here is Justice John Hathorne, an ancestor of Nathaniel Hawthorne and one of the judges in the Witchcraft Court. As we walked through the cemetery it was interesting to see the notes and flowers left by the families of the deceased even hundreds of years later!
