Poe grave in 1875
Here is a picture of Edgar Allan Poe's reburial celebration on November 17, 1875 at Westminster graveyard. Poe was originally buried elsewhere on the grounds, in an unmarked grave. In 1865, a collection was started for a new monument to honor Poe. Money came from students, friends, and private donations. By 1875 sufficient funds had been collected and the monument was erected. For detailed information on the history of Poe's grave, see this page.
