You may remember a couple of summers ago I took the boys to the Edgar Allan Poe house in Richmond. There is also a Poe house in Baltimore. It's located in a seriously scary neighborhood (like so bad I didn't want to stand outside to take a picture), but we decided to brave it briefly. This is the attic bedroom of the tiny old house.
After we headed back towards downtown so that we could visit the Poe graves (there are two markers). This was the boys' favorite part of the day. The cemetery is mostly 18th century and is so interesting.
There are graves and catacombs all throughout the churchyard. It was fun exploring.
Here is the newer Edgar Allan Poe marker. It's on the corner by the street and has easier access for visitors.
Isn't it an unusual cemetery? And the graves were willy nilly all over the place.
Here's the original burial place for Poe. You can see that visitors have left tokens at the stone recently.
There are a number of prominent people who were buried in the cemetery. Historical markers are dotted throughout.
And then look at this section - it actually tunnels under the church. There are even graves located beneath in the crawlspace.
