  • It is super accessible, though I definitely recommend going during the day. We stayed by the Harbor so it was a quick walk to the corner entrance. We viewed the memorial first, plus the information posted on placards conveniently placed throughout. It was more crowded than I would've liked, but you should still follow the path all of the way around. You'll see Poe's grave and a cool little graveyard.
  • This Cemetary is very accessible and beautiful piece of history. There are famous figures buried here who played significant roles in the American Revolution and other historic battles which was pretty cool to see. As a note the walk is doable, but if you are coming from the pier area, take a scooter or Lyft there because it’s a long incline up hill which will lengthen your walk. Walk back! Trust me. Overall, thank you Westminster Church for this historic site!
