Lancaster, R. Kent. "Green Mount: The Introduction of the Rural Cemetery into Baltimore." Maryland Historical Magazine 74 (March 1979): 62-79.
Annotation / Notes: Lancaster traces the history of Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery, established in the 1830s as one of the country's earliest urban "rural cemeteries." Modeled after Mt. Auburn in Boston, it was intended as "a careful blending of nature, art, and death." He examines the lists of early subscribers to evaluate the social significance of the institution. He also traces the design and construction of the cemetery, as well as the changing styles for grave markers. Lancaster observes that Green Mount today is surrounded by urban congestion and seldom visited, yet it remains a treasure trove of Baltimore's connection with its past.
