Beautiful cemetery In a really shady part of town. I know I am born and raised in Baltimore. But our main visit was for three graves. John Wilkes Booth and the Ouija board grave and Johnny Eck. -John Wilkes Booth's grave is actually a unmarked grave because the family felt that it would be for the best. You will find... More

Historical Green Mount Cemetery located in one of the Baltimore's more seedy and run down neighborhoods. As a previous reviewer stated, you need to be constantly aware of your surrounding. Visitors must stop at the office and check in. They will provide you with a map which will help you find more than 70 of the most visited graves. This... More

I'm not sure why people are going on and on about the neighborhood. It's fine. It's a city. The reviews had me nervous but honestly, it's fine. I went with my 13 year old godson who is a huge Lincoln fan and he wanted to go see John Wilkes Booth's gravestone. We saw it along with 2 other Lincoln conspirators... More

A beautiful green oasis in the busy city. You can see beautiful bronze sculptures here, too. But beyond all that is the amazing history. Names that a famous all over Baltimore can be found here, including Enoch Pratt, who funded the library system that still goes today. Probably the most infamous here is the unmarked grave of presidential assassin John... More

Being that I love history, this was a must-see for me. Although I would do many things for the sake of history, by all means, please do not go alone. This cemetery is not in the best part of time. There is barbed wire over the top of the fences to keep outsiders OUT of the cemetery and you have... More

The Greenmount Cemetery is a little slice of history where you would least expect it. It is the final resting place for some very famous and infamous people. If you appreciate the art and beauty of well crafted old head stones, then you are in luck. Caution: This is not a very safe neighborhood after dark, so proceed with caution.

Green Mount is a beautiful cemetery. I greatly enjoyed my visit. The cemetery is well kept. About an hour 1/2 drive from Philadelphia and easy to get to. Just to note that I was told to be prepared to leave by 3:30pm as they close at 4pm. That wasn't a problem since I got there early. It was so hot... More
