Definitely a must see if you're in Salem Mass. It is closed this year, due to being revamped. Not sure why that would keep it from being open as there were no workers, tools or machinery there. Everything was just blocked off. But you can still see it and take pictures from the outside

I'm handicapped so getting to the Old Burying Point was a bit difficult with no parking very near. We went early in the morning on a Tuesday so there weren't a lot of people there. It was surreal to stand there and see these centuries old graves and know what some of them partook in.

The variety of engravings on the headstones in the Old Burying Point Cemetery is amazing. Considering its age, the grounds are in very good repair. Restoration work is currently underway, but friendly workers let us enter and have a good look around. Given the number of October visitors Salem attracts though, I think it is smart that they restrict access to the cemetery as old stones are very fragile. We were there in September and this was one of the highlights of our trip.

While interesting to view, it will make excellent exploration when it is again open to the public. You need to view items adjacent, so it is easy to include in your exploration

We wished we could have walked inside to see the graves but everything was fenced off. Tip: it's better if you're short on time to go to the Howard Street old graveyard nearby/behind Witch Museum. And make drive to Marblehead to see that old cemetary, very cinematic.
