While the real draw of this cemetery is Poe's grave stone, which is interestingly shared wit his wife and mother-in-law, the rest of the grounds should be explored as well. Along with a few heroes of the battle of Baltimore the grave of Poe's grandfather...More

I visited this famous gravesite in the fall. It was not crowded and there are so many interesting "facts" available to those who take the time to walk the grounds. One little known fact - this marker IS NOT the grave site of Edgar Allen...More

Very historical gravesite in downtown Baltimore. The famous author and other family members are buried here as well as other dignitaries. And, yes fans do leave pennies on his monument.

Beautiful, unusual cemetary, with not only Poe, there are many important figures to the history of the United States. I learned a great deal. A great piece of the story of Baltimore , go see it.

Please look for the original grave area located more towards the back. Area of town in kinda sketch but should be ok during day light. Do not advise going alone though.

Worth the visit for the history enthusiast. Travel the off beaten path to visit this gem. Surrounded by other timely graves, time stood as the graves aged but everything else built foreword.

It's a spot to see, in an interesting part of the city. Not a lot going on but worth the walk/drive by.

Enjoyed walking through the graveyard and reading some Baltimore history. It was closer to dark when we visited but that added some spookiness. My cell phone did completely drain without any warning so I think it was something drawing energy :)

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