  • So, we've all read his works and know about some of his allegedly creepy behaviors. However, this is a nice, low-key place to stop and think. Poe probably had some mental health issues - he was kicked...  more »
  • Well people it's a graveyard located on the grounds of a very beautiful church so expect to feel both uneasy and peaceful at the same time (depending of course on your own personal disposition around ...  more »
  • This time-honored small cemetery is a must for all fans of Poe. Not necessarily for everyone else. The tomb was originally in the rear part of the cemetery, but then was transferred because of the many visitors forward to the entrance. Therefore, they are 2 graves of Poe.

  • I'd been there before, so wasn't lacking in information. However, the Docent who was there was filled with things I didn't know! He even told us about a part of the graveyard that, if you're just standing looking at the crypts, looks like the back of the graveyard. However, if you walk down the thin path between them (which if he had not told us was OK, totally looks like something you're not supposed to do!) and you get to more crypts. One, I believe he said, is called "The Egyptian" because it has faces carved on it. Altogether a great experience learning something new about a place I've been multiple times before!
  • Cool spot to visit. The gate was locked however so we couldn't get very close
  • You might as well make the trip and say you saw the grave and cemetery with other native Baltimore notable citizens buried there. Other than that it is a bit deflating. Like saying, is this it, well yes it is. There are interpretive plaques along the walk that inform you about the other notable people interned there. So it is pretty informative and for no fee involved it's a nice place to kill some time.
  • Amazing and interesting grave yard with a host of very old graves. Probably the most unique cemetery I have ever visited with graves nearly on top of each other and fighting for space. Some of Poe's neighbors are the founding fathers of Baltimore and add a richness to the history I did not expect.
  • Cool to see a little piece of history. I went on a rainy day and it was even better.
