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 :)

This is quite an interesting grave with facts about his untimely death. With a guided tour you will hear much about his life and death. It will not take much time to view the grave and hear the story.

I was fortunate enough to get to visit this revered site on the anniversary of his passing. Poe’s works have been instrumental in my life from the time I could read, and Westminster takes the spooky cake.

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