I only went there cause my daughter, the Eng. teacher, "had" to see it -- we were in Baltimore for a wedding and vacation. It is right up the street from Camden Yard, which we went to first. There are other graves there, mostly famous Baltimoreans, circa Rev. War era. That was interesting. If you are going to Camden Yd,... More

We stopped by early on Sunday. The gates were open. The signs around the cemetery point out Poe and other notables buried there. It was great.

I was interested in visiting Edgar Allan Poe's grave, but if you're going to take a walking tour from your hotel, know that this area has a lot of needy, and you will be asked for money almost every couple blocks, one lady became confrontational. Kinda ruined it for me.

I arrived early Saturday morning having seen that the graveyard opened at 800. It is apparently 900. Be aware that there is a Poe monument right by the gate, but you won't be able to see his grave unless you go inside.

Poe being one of my favorite writers this was a definite must see stop. The marble stone to commemorate him is pure perfection. You will park next to the church and the go to the gate that is open. We went around 7 pm. It's a wonderful grave site with much history. It is self guided so take your time.... More

I love how peaceful it was and that his burial was at the front and if you keep walking you can see his original burial site.

Went to see Edgar Allen Poe's grave stone, but ended up walking through the whole cemetery, very interesting burial sites and stones. Grave stones do not seem very well maintained, but the cemetery was interesting to visit, and lots of signs with information about the people buried there made it an educational visit.

So, before we wrapped up our trip and headed to the airport we made one last stop... I was amazed by all the other graves they had here and it was great walking through looking at all this history.

Off the beaten path. Nice tribute to Edgar Allen Poe. I would definitely get a ride in and out of here. Neighborhood is shady.
