Travel Tips for Frederick

Mount Olivet Cemetery & Francis Scott Key Monument

by Ewingjr98

Mount Olivet Cemetery was founded in 1852 to relieve the quickly filling cemeteries of downtown Frederick. The first burial took place here in 1854 and in later years many of the city's smaller cemeteries were actually moved here. Today the cemetery is the final resting place of a handful of former congressmen, supreme court justices, generals and patriots.

The most famous person buried here is Francis Scott Key, the writer of the Star Spangled Banner. When Key died in 1843, he was initially buried at Old Saint Paul's Cemetery in Baltimore, but in 1866 his remains were moved to the family plot here at Mount Olivet. In 1898 the Key Monument Association created a monument and crypt for Key and his wife, and their bodies were moved a final time to a tomb befitting of Key's importance to American history.
