我有一个关联的旧墓地。 来自新英格兰和成长的去困空心concord ,作者山脊和所有。 但住在马里兰州,我很惊讶在许多历史和gothicy华丽的墓地我们有很多看起来好像不是很喜欢。 在巴尔的摩花沟农村客运站公园墓地(卡顿斯维尔附近,在西边)是一个我强烈推荐 - - 但是也许不会在万圣节! 它先是肯定的。 部件来旧的部分是你可以通过输入当前只能到,酒店现代医院就迫切需要的。 你就沿着路和拥挤因为它的右侧和摇摇晃晃的桥横跨一条(真的! )然后你就会发现这真是一个神奇的地方! 从一楼的最高点,你可以看到一个蓝色的水内港。 这个墓地是第一个将有它自己的电车系统,使用特殊的列车前往的游客和带100英亩的绿色植物。 它有几个著名的纪念碑: 杰罗姆波拿巴,拿破仑的侄子,和几个他的家人; Mary皮克斯吉尔,女裁缝的那些碎块标志的上空飞fort mchenry 1814 francis scott智慧我们国家在关键时要起立; 和一座陵墓(Weiskittel深坑的保险)的注册表上列出的国家的具有历史意义的地方。 还有一个用于保存部分2, 300联合士兵和600联盟国死(大部分的犯人死联合战争)。 但是,对我来说,是许多哥特式的绘制和ivy - 墓碑的Baltimoreans早他家庭现在远和/或过期的和他不再来这个地方了。 康乃馨没有去为这些灵魂抱多带一件的。

Hidden gem would make Poe proud!
2017年2月 • 独自旅游
I have an affinity for old cemeteries. Comes from growing up in New England and trips to Sleepy Hollow in Concord, author's ridge and all. But living in Maryland, I'm amazed at the many historic and gothicy gorgeous cemeteries we have that not many seem to appreciate. Loudon Park Cemetery in Baltimore (near Catonsville, on the West side) is one I highly recommend--but maybe not on Halloween! It's for sure haunted. The part to visit is the Old Section which you can only get to by entering the current, modern cemetery off Wilkens Ave. and just follow the road as it wends to the right and crosses a rickety bridge (really!) and then you are transported to a truly magical place! From the highest point of ground, you can see the blue water of the inner harbor.

This cemetery was the first to have its own trolley system, with special rail cars bringing mourners and visitors to the 100 acres of greenery. It's got a few famous memorials: Jerome Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon, and several of his family; Mary Pickersgill, the seamstress who sewed the flag that flew over Fort McHenry in 1814 when Francis Scott Key penned our national anthem; and a mausoleum (the Weiskittel Burial Vault) that's listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. There's also a section which holds 2,300 Union soldiers and 600 Confederate dead (most who died as Union prisoners of war).

But, for me, the draw is the many gothic and ivy-covered graves of early Baltimoreans whose families are now far flung and/or expired and who no longer visit this place. Bring an extra armful of carnations for these unvisited souls.

Largest Cemetery in U.S.A.
2015年6月 • 家庭
As sad as cemetaries are to visit, this one is huge and unique, and the largest. Like to visit, but don't think I would be buried there, you could get lost

A great but unusual setting for exploring history and art.
2013年6月 • 独自旅游
FYI: This review doesn't have to do so much with the services of the company that runs the cemetery. It has to do with visiting the cemetery.

I think it's pretty easy to say that most people would not think of cemeteries as a place to visit unless they are there to lay a loved one to rest or to visit the grave site of a loved one. But if you're looking to take an interesting look at history and art then a cemetery might be a place to visit. I should note i do have relatives buried here. However i am several generations removed from them.

Loudon Park is the largest of the cemeteries within the city limits of Baltimore, but it's probably the third most historic, after Westminster Burial Grounds and Green Mount. But that's not to say you won't find historical figures or names from Baltimore's past or great sculpture in it. More than likely if your family has far-reaching roots in Baltimore City, you probably have an ancestor or two buried here.

If you do have ancestors buried here the first place you want to start is the administration building on Wilkens Ave, where the current main entrance is (the historic main entrance is off of Frederick Rd and it's not always open). This building also serves as a funeral home as well, so you might want to keep that in mind. At the least they should be able to provide you a map of Loudon. They have in the past, i haven't asked recently, been willing to pull up records for me for small request. For larger ones i would recommend writing down what you are looking for and providing contact information so they can send it to you when they find it.

The cemetery its self is separated into 3 main sections (some would say four but i'm leaving out the adjacent Loudon National Cemetery even though it's adjacent, as there is no direct connection between the two, w/o climbing over a fence, and Loudon National is managed by the Federal Government as a Veterans Cemetery). A lower, central, and upper section.

In general as you travel from the Wilkens Ave side to the Frederick Ave side, the dates of the burials go further and further back. Also the ornateness and number of monuments increase, not only in number but also in size (and there are some very large ones. Also note that the terrain also changes, from a more gentle rolling one to a more hilly one. It's also a pretty good distance from the Frederick Ave entrance to the administration building, something i learned the hard way on my first visit.

Among those buried at Loudon include Mary Pickersgill who was commissioned to make the Star Spangled Banner that flew over Fort McHenry in the War of 1812, Ottmar Mergenthaler the inventor of the Linotype machine which ushered in the modern age of printing, noted journalist H. L. Mencken, and Charles Joseph Bonaparte (former US Attorney General who my family has a personal connect to) and his father Jerome Bonaparte whom if you haven't figured out are related to Napoleon Bonaparte of France. There is also a family tomb (Weiskittel-Roehle Burial Vault) that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

My recommendation, take a camera, get a map, see if you have relatives their and/or explore how we used to moralize our relatives, you might be oddly surprised hot interesting a visit it might be.
