Tours of the Macabre for Groups in Baltimore

A literary tour of the city might include getting a bus rental to check out the home of the legendary Edgar Allen Poe, who lived in Baltimore briefly when he was younger, and then after some success returned to the city in 1831. Poe first found fame in Baltimore when he won $50 in a short story contest. The Poe House is open year round for exploration, and nearby is Westminster Cemetery, where he was buried. His body is interned beneath a six foot obelisk. The influence of Poe on the American short story is unparalleled; some even credit him with inventing the modern short story form. He moreover deeply influenced, if not created, the detective genre of literature, as well as the horror novel. Every year on January 19 a mysterious stranger decorates Poe’s grave with roses and a bottle of cognac.

Sidewalks with painted baseballs direct traffic to the house where Babe Ruth was born, as well as the structure where Francis Scott Key penned the national anthem.
