Broad Street Cemetery was established in 1655 and is Salem’s second oldest cemetery. Noted burials at the cemetery include a Salem Witch Trials judge, Revolutionary and Civil War veterans, and local merchants and philanthropists.
Join us for a guided tour of this historic cemetery with Fred Norton, official storyteller of the Friends of Broad Street Cemetery, who will explore the history of the cemetery and the stories of those who are buried there, and stone conservator Rachel Meyer, who will discuss ongoing efforts to preserve the cemetery’s historic slate and marble burial markers, which exhibit some of the best gravestone carving on the North Shore.
