Cemetery notes and/or description:
Green Mount Cemetery was one of the earliest rural or garden cemeteries in the United States. Samuel Walker, a Baltimore tobacco merchant, led the campaign to establish the Cemetery after visiting Mount Auburn Cemetery in 1834.

After a successful campaign, Walker, and a group of gentlemen drew up the plans for a public cemetery. The site they chose was the country estate of the late merchant Robert Oliver. Oliver's estate, known as "Green Mount", was a hilly location at the then northern boundary of the city of Baltimore.

Benjamin Latrobe, a civil engineer with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, laid out the early design of the Cemetery. His efforts produced a place for reflection with shady avenues and beautiful gardens.

Green Mount Cemetery was officially dedicated on July 13, 1839.
