    Very cool graveyard. Make sure to walk into the back to see the original resting place of the man himself!

    Beware of closing time. We got locked inside way before dusk. No one even checks to see if anyone is left. The gate gets chained and padlocked and traps you, forcing you to scale the wall...

    The famous, mysterious, and anonymous Poe Toaster who left 3 roses and an unfinished bottle of Martell cognac annually was last spotted on Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday on January 19, 2009.

    Check out the whole cemetery- it's very cool and historical with graves of yesteryear of Baltimore elite. It wraps all the way around. 100% worth it.

    I'm as Baltimore as the next guy, but truth be told, Poe doesn't belong to us. He lived here for only the last 18 months of his life and wrote nothing of significance in that period.

    Visit in the early hours of Jan 19th (Poe's Birthday) to get at shot at seeing The Poe Toaster, a shadowy figure who has visited the grave every year for 7 decades to toast Poe w/ a glass of Congac.

    Go on a rainy day/evening for the full effect. The site is really quite cool.

    A man of mystery, a dark genius. An inspiration & muse for many, over 150 after his death. Baltimores own literary legend.

    What Kim Hammond loves about Bmore: "Late at night, after ... driving by Poe's grave, heading to Montgomery Street to see the thinnest house in America. It's labeled 'Little House' in stained glass." Read more
