No votes yet

One of the earliest rural or garden cemeteries in the United States, Green Mount serves as a place of nature and a respite of calm in the city. Numerous trees and winding paths join the impressive statues and monuments. This cemetery marks the final resting places of many of Baltimore's most famous mayors, Maryland's governors, and Baltimore philanthropists and industrialists. Samuel Walker, a Baltimore tobacco merchant, led the campaign to establish the cemetery after visiting Mount Auburn Cemetery in 1834. Green Mount is also frequented by bird watchers.

Visitors are encouraged to take self-guided tours or driving tours; guided group tours are also available year-round. Please call the cemetery or e-mail tours@greenmountcemetery.com for more information.
