Edgar Allan Poe's Gravesite

Cemetery in Baltimore

Horror writer Edgar Allan Poe was buried twice on the grounds of Westminster Hall. His body was first deposited in an unmarked grave behind the church after his death in 1849. In 1875, his remains were moved to the northwest corner of the property, where they are now marked by a sturdy four-sided monument. Note the engraved birthday – it's incorrect. Poe was born on January 19, not January 20.
