This cemetery holds the remains of many famous Baltimore people. I don't want to be incorrect so I wont offer any names. But a google search will tell you. Tours available.

Worth a stop to look for the angels. There's a dozen of them and some are truly great works of art. Bonus if your name is Einstein or any other German or Jewish ancestry.

You can drive through it but definitely stop throughout to walk around and look at the old graves. Elijah Bonds grave is really cool. Definitely bring a penny to put on John WIlks Booth unmarked grave!

Historical Green Mount Cemetery located in one of the Baltimore's more seedy and run down neighborhoods. As a previous reviewer stated, you need to be constantly aware of your surrounding. Visitors must stop at the office and check in. They will provide you with a...More

I'm not sure why people are going on and on about the neighborhood. It's fine. It's a city. The reviews had me nervous but honestly, it's fine. I went with my 13 year old godson who is a huge Lincoln fan and he wanted to...More
