Drive by and smell the drug dealers. Guess you go where you are gonna go if you are a drug dealer. Just a seedy part of town. I'm sure it's difficult to rest in peace.

Many relatives are buried there. The cemetary has a historical legacy of the city because some of the people buried there..

The home of many Baltimoreans who came and settled here - yes, John Wilkes Booth, the assasin of President Lincoln, that means you too !

I have done many funerals here, but never had the chance to wander the grounds until recently. It turns out that it is a masterful piece of landscape architecture. Don't worry about the Booth family graves (unless you are family!) and take it all in as a vision of the Kingdom of God.

It is truly an oasis within the city. I am partial because of the family connection. My paternal ancesters are buried here near the Walters family and Betsy Bonaparte. The list of dignitaries is amazing. Visit and pick up the list. It is also relatively safe considering it is in a very depressed area.
