The Charter Street Burial Ground, started in 1637, also known as "Old Burying Point" or the "Charter Street Cemetery", is the oldest cemetery in Salem. Many early and famous Salem residents are buried here, such as Jonathan Corwin and John Hathorne, both judges in the Salem witch trials of 1692 and Samuel Bradstreet, the Governor of Massachusetts. Another famous gravestone is of the only Mayflower passenger buried here, a Capt. Richard More. For lists of others who are buried here, see the links below.
