On April 4 from noon to 1 p.m., members of the University of Maryland, Baltimore community will have an opportunity to take a free walking tour of the Westminster Hall Burying Ground and Catacombs.
Experienced tour guide Lu Ann Marshall will lead visitors through the catacombs and, weather permitting, the outdoor graveyard. Photographs are permitted.
Westminster Hall, the historic building located at the intersection of Fayette and Greene streets, shares a city block with the University of Maryland Carey School of Law. The church, which was completed in 1852, was built more than 60 years after the burying ground was established. The burying ground is the final resting place of many famous people, including Edgar Allen Poe and Generals Sam Smith and James McHenry.
