The graveyard was established in January 1787 by the First Presbyterian Church of Baltimore. Over the next 60 years, the "Burying Grounds" became the final resting place for many important and influential Baltimore citizens.

On October 4th 1849 - Edgar Allan Poe was found in Baltimore near East Lombard Street. He was sick, semi-conscious, and wearing clothes that were not his. He was taken to a local hospital, and reported to be "delirious". 4 days later, Poe died at 5 A.M. He is said to have repeatedly called out the name "Reynolds" on the night before his death. His cause of death remains a mystery to this day.

Poe's funeral was held Monday, October 8, 1849. It was a dark and dreary day. His service lasted only 3 minutes, with no sermon given due to "too small a crowd".

Originally, Poe was laid to rest in the back part of Westminster cemetery without a headstone. In 1875, Poe was exhumed & moved to the front part of the cemetery along with a new monument placed in his honor. Poe's late wife and other family members now rest alongside him.

In July 1852, Westminster Presbyterian Church was erected over top the graveyard, its brick piers straddling gravestones and burial vaults to create what later Baltimoreans referred to as the "catacombs." The congregation of this church continued until 1977.

Rumors of ghosts & hauntings have long be associated with Westminster Hall. It was featured on an episode of "Creepy Canada" - with paranormal investigators discussing potential hauntings.
