Title: A Visit With Mr. Poe
Post by: Kidagain on June 02, 2018, 01:49:53 PM
Went down to Baltimore's inner harbor for my granddaughters graduation from Loyola University Md. Just a short 5 block walk from our hotel is the cemetery where Edgar Alan Poe is buried.Not going to miss this chance to visit, my wife,son and myself took the short walk to the small cemetery during a misty rainy Friday.

In the back of the cemetery is Poe's original burial plot before being moved to the front.

Very surprised we were the only one's in the entire cemetery during early afternoon.A bit spooky with the misty rain and walking thru the narrow paths to the rear of the place.Glad we went during our downtime before the main event.There was a graduation too!

There's an article about the 1875 exhumation in my almanac. A doctor who was present remarked on
the "excellent condition" of Poe's skull and teeth. Somewhere, I still have a few chips of masonry from
his home there in Baltimore. Thanks for taking us along on your ghoulish side trip, Kidagain.
