Mount Olivet Cemetery is the final resting place of Francis Scott Key and visitor can not miss the Key Monument at the entrance to the Cemetery. And I dare say that many visitors make the Key Monument their only stop, and if true they are missing so much. Hundreds of Confederate and Union Soldiers are resting here. More than 300... 更多
We run through this huge cemetery all the time but recently went on a candlight tour. Our guide was very friendly and excellent at what he does. We learned all about the history behind the cemetry and so many of it's residents.
We really enjoyed the Nathaniel Scott Key statue and memorial, perusing old tombstones, and the markers of Confederate soldiers. This park is nicely kept up and peaceful. If you are in Frederick, it takes less than 45 minutes to see it all.

It is the burial place of Francis Scott Key, easily found at the main entrance. In addition, soldiers from the civil war and others are marked. It is an old cemetary, still in use today. A map of sections is located at the main entrance.

I had been traveling throughout the area and had a note with just the cemetery name on it. Couldn't remember why I had this location, but I love OLD cemeteries, so since there was time I put it in the GPS, what a very pleasant surprise. Wish the weather had been a bit nicer for more exploring.
As cemeteries go Mt. Olivet is in a unique class of having hundreds of years of history on it's grounds. A worthwhile spot to visit with a local guide to tell the stories of those who are buried there.
Stopped here on our way home from OC. The Francis Scott Key memorial was beautiful & gave us both goosebumps as we read the plaques & listened to the Star Spangled Banner play. The civil war graves lined in a row along with a mass grave of 400 unknowns is very unsettling. There are many other fascinating graves, you could... 更多
