Explore New Hampshire's oldest Colonial burial ground, the Point of Graves, dating from the late 1600's, with Roxie J. Zwicker, author of the Haunted Cemeteries of New England and the New Hampshire Book of the Dead.
We receive calls and emails quite frequently asking the question, "Which tour should I take where I might experience a ghost?" The answer is this one! We will introduce you to one of the resident spirits in this cemetery who has many messages for the living. This tour is a well balanced journey of fascinating history and cemetery hauntings. Also highlighting unusual burial and cemetery customs, superstitions and traditions from Colonial times through the 19th century.
What stories have been buried with Portsmouth's notable citizens? Learn about superstitious gravestone symbolism and view some of the most amazing 17th and 18th Century gravestones in Northern New England.
View handcarved skulls and crossbones, winged skulls, the hourglass that ran out nearly 300 years ago, and cherubs - some angelic and others startling. Decide for yourself if this is a peaceful resting place or a place where some spirits don't rest quietly.
Our spirited tour is about one hour long. Make sure to dress for the outdoor weather! Bring your camera, video camera and flashlight for our rare night time excursions into the graveyard.
