WHAT TO EXPECT
Once you park and walk into Old Salem, you will notice ushers at various locations. These people are available to direct you to your destination as well as answer general questions that you might have. It will be somewhat dark when you arrive and there is a fair amount of walking involved, so plan to dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. The dress for this service is casual and strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. If you are with someone in a wheelchair, you may drive into Old Salem near the square to drop them off and then leave to park your vehicle. Restroom facilities are available at various locations (click on link below) and any usher will be glad to help direct you. Our graveyard regulations do not allow pets in the graveyard or on Cedar Avenue, so please refrain from bringing pets to the service.
