We saw this on the trolley tour. It is interesting, but not compelling enough to return by bus. It is pretty visible from the street.

If you enjoy visiting old cemeteries, this is a great one! Poe is there (of course), but so are heroes from the War of 1812 -- including the namesake of Fort McHenry.

A police officer was closing the gates at 6 pm in the summer to the cemetery and let us in before he locked it.
