I loved visiting this cemetery. I came to see the final resting place of Francis Scott Key. The grounds are very well maintained.

Loads of history - Francis Scott Key is buried here. A great drive through American history. Find Governor Johnson's grave as well. If you are cyclist - a great route through a quiet and historic cemetery.

We have family buried there, unfortunately the grounds aren't kept up like they use to be! Sign says no dogs in Cemetery, almost every time we are there someone is either jogging with their dog(s) for walking them. Faculty and staff maybe should ride thru the cemetery a few time a day and check things out!
