Old Burial Hill

Established in 1638 at the site of Marbleheadís first meeting house, it's the burial site of an estimated 600 Revolutionary soldiers, although only a few of those graves are marked.

The graveyard has many well preserved headstones, some dating back to the seventeenth century. Their carvings exemplify artistic and religious expression of the Puritan period, and their epitaphs reflect the times of these settlers, sea captains, fishermen, wives and children.
