This week, we have Salem Street Burying Ground.  They are located in Medford Square, between Salem St. & Riverside Ave, Salem Street Burying Ground was originally the privateBurying Place for the Wade family in the late 1600s. It was acquired by the town of Medford by May of 1717. The earliest stone is marked 1683. The last burial took place in 1881. There are apparently over 600 people buriedhere, however there are only 485 markers. There are believed to be over 50 slave buried in unmarked graves. Transcriptions of the graves are available at the Medford Public Library and the Medford Historical Society, and online at
