The Burying Point

The Burying Point, also known as the Charter Street Cemetery, is the oldest cemetery in Salem. Established in 1637, it is also the second oldest cemetery in the United States. Located in the heart of Salem, adjacent to the Salem Witch Trials Memorial, it has 347 recorded grave sites. Some interesting historical figures are buried there including Jonathan Corwin and John Hawthorne, who were Judges in the Salem Witch Trials, as well as Samuel Bradstreet, who was the Governor of Massachusetts.

Here is one of the oldest graves that I could find, where I could still make out the writing on the tombstone (1683).

The Farmers Market

The Farmers Market had a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as painted pumpkins and apple cider, which were all brought in by local farmers.
