The poet took great care in designing his final resting place, which has become the victim of neglect.

It is interesting to see Whitman tomb but it is a bit disappointing as it is not well cared for. See it once and take a friend if they want to go. But once or twice is enough .

Years ago, not recently... My Dad and I walked from his mother's home to Walt Whitman's grave when I was a girl. It made an impression on me, as I later studied Whitman's poetry and loved it. Dad grew up not far from here, around...More

Sorry, but I wish I could tell you this was a well preserved memorial park, but it appears to be more of a hang-out for homeless Camdenites. Not well kept, given the historic magnitude of old Walt.

Walt Whitman's grave is definitely a pilgrimage site. We were lucky and encountered another Whitman fan visiting from Seattle, reading aloud on Solstice Day. The entire cemetery is beautiful & historic, so it's worth walking around. Not too far from Whitman's tomb is the grave...More

It is set back in the recesses of the cemetery. There are Whitman "readings" and different times. A very old historic mausoleum

If you're in the area, and are into writer homes or a fan of Walt Whitman, so on in to check it out. There isn't a whole lot to the stop. But it's interesting and history.
