“Come little children, I'll take thee away. Into a land of enchantment.”
Old Burial Hill Cemetery is the daytime exterior filming location in the movie Hocus Pocus. Old Burial Hill is an historic cemetery in Marblehead, Massachusetts. It is located on the high ground between Marblehead's colonial-era residential and retail district, called "Downtown" by longtime residents and "Old Town" by others, and the Barnegat neighborhood that stretches from Little Harbor to Doliber's Cove, and is accessible via a walkway at Redd's Pond and a stairway at the intersection of Orne and Pond streets. Old Burial Hill features scenic vistas of Marblehead Harbor and Salem Sound. The burying ground was founded in 1638 and contains many historic Puritan gravestones featuring diverse stone carving artwork from the seventeenth century. The burial ground also contains the remains of a victim of the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. It is referenced briefly in the horror author H.P Lovecraft's short-story, The Festival.
