  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Even though I got there before it was open I could see the grave site from the street. The area is well maintained and it seems safe in the area.
  • I'm a huge fan of Poe's work. It was quite an emotional experience to visit his grave site. The little graveyard is well looked after.
