After visiting the Poe Museum, we stopped by the Burying Grounds to see the Poe plots (original and new) as well as other influential Baltimore natives. It was a great addition to our visit.

Well kept quaint cemetery and small museum in downtown. Walked from the Univ of MD (a couple blocks) without problems and was super easy to find.

How can anyone visit Baltimore without paying respects to Mr. Poe? Easy to find and conveniently located, the gravesite of Edgar Allan Poe is a must for anyone who loves the macabre scripts of this classic American writer.

We walked here from our hotel, and it was not a bad walk to us from the inner harbor. It was drizzling, and we read Annabelle Lee because it was short. It was a cool atmosphere, and it was a nice place to visit.
