In addition to poe's grave, there are other unusual types of burials. Stones were nestled into every nook and cranny around and under the church. A very interesting cemetery!

Come for Poe, stay for ambiance and other historic graves. You'll find the Poe monument as you enter. This is not his original burial place (you can find that elsewhere in the graveyard), but walk around the graveyard. McHenry is buried here.

An appropriately old and spooky grave yard in the middle of downtown. A new grave and an old grave, some family members and some prominent members of Baltimore's past. Worth a 20 minute stop.

Interesting historical grave - Poe's grave (and placards) tell his story in a very shortened version. Worth checking out.

One of America's famous poets finally came to rest (after several moves about the grave yard) In the churches graveyard. Legendary in Baltimore on Halloween , unknown visitor leaves cognac and red roses. Google it! But worthwhile small but still local legend

Don't understand why but, the gate was locked and I had to look at the grave from the fence. It seemed pretty interesting and I would have liked to have been able to walk around the churchyard and viewed the other graves.
