Attended a wedding in the hall & was treated to the tour of the catacombs. The hall is an awesome venue. The catacombs tour was fascinating. Lots of Baltimore history & interesting info. Not to be missed!

My friends and I took a private tour of the burial grounds and catacombs last night and it was great! Jeff Jerome the guide was entertaining and informative. The only downside was the time went by too quick. Best advice if you're taking an evening...More

The cemetery made me feel as if I stepped back in time. It was bathed in culture and was informative. It is the final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe and many others.
