But to me the culminating thing in Baltimore was a dingy monument in a corner of Westminster Presbyterian Churchyard, which the slums have long overtaken. It is near a high wall, and a willow weeps over it. Melancholy broods around it, and black wings brush it in the night - for it is the grave of Edgar Allan Poe. - H. P. Lovecraft, 1928 to Maurice Moe in Collected Essays: Travel Volume 4. (p. 25)

Too bad it looks like the willow HPL described is no more... are there any wider shots of the site?
