Visit Poe's Grave on His 200th Halloween
Visit Westminster burying grounds and catacombs at the corner of Fayette and Green streets in downtown Baltimore for more than a glimpse of Poe’s final resting place. The address is 519 W. Fayette St, Baltimore, Maryland.
The event includes eerie music, performed on the restored 1882 Johnson pipe organ, a haunting performance of The Usher Waltz by guitarist Andy Mitchell, words on the War of 1812 from General John Stricker (also buried in the graveyard), ghost hunting tips with a paranormal investigator, a loving tribute to Edgar Allan Poe by his wife, Virginia, a nerve-tingling performance by Frank the Body Snatcher, a stroll through the catacombs and graveyard, and to top it all off … a reading of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven over the author’s grave.
Is that a heart I hear beating below?
Halloween night only there will be continuous tours from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. No reservations are required. Tickets available at the door: $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children (12 & under) & seniors (60 & over).
Once Halloween is over the event is, quoth the raven, nevermore.
