From the Baltimore Sun-1998 Here it is-The Proof

An urban mystery

May 29, 1998|By Helen Jean Burn

The place is easy to miss; all you see from the street is a 10-foot wall topped by iron spikes. The surrounding ground has been used as a dump. If you walk around, you’ll find that the wall encloses a rectangular space some 40 feet by 60 feet. On one side is a padlocked metal door. Behind that door, according to “The Very Quiet Baltimoreans,” Jane B. Wilson’s book about the city’s old cemeteries, are buried William Patterson and nearly all of his immediate family.

Patterson is remembered as the man who gave the city the land for Patterson Park. Generally forgotten are his other contributions to Baltimore’s early growth through his work in shipping, banking, insurance and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

I'm one nifty dude who is fascinated by his hometown; Baltimore, MD. It is persistently beautiful and ugly and I wish to live nowhere else ever again.
