Just wanted to share some photos from a visit to Edgar Allan Poe's house and grave, taken about three years ago. We were driving from the Northeast down to Florida, and decided to stop here. I must say, it was one of the highlights of that trip, especially for me, as I've always loved Poe's work. These sites are definitely worth a visit for any Poe fan!
Gates to Westminster Burying Ground, 519 West Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.
Interior of the Westminster Burying Ground. A wee bit spooky!
Poe's resting site. The ground actually slopes underneath, but I straightened this photo out. This memorial stone is located just inside the gates to the cemetery.
