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.

It was nice seeing Poe's grave along with other old stones, it won't take you long to walk through but it's a nice little free thing to do if you're in the area

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.

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