Quoth the raven, “Nevermore”

Hubby and I went to Baltimore today. I wish it were for a fun outing, but it was to get my wisdom teeth extracted. Anyway, imagine our happy surprise when we found out that Edgar Allan Poe was buried right down the road from the University of Maryland Dental School where I was going to have said procedure. We left to give ourselves to pay our respects to an author before my wisdom teeth were “Nevermore”. Pictures for your viewing pleasure are below.

Poe’s final resting place

On the grave marker

Buried next to his wife/cousin. His mother-in-law is buried on the other side.

This is where Poe was originally buried.

Poe’s Grandfather is buried in the same cemetery.

So, if you happen to be in Baltimore, you should stop by and check it out. It is on the corner of W Fayette Street and N Greene Street at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
