Francis Scott Key's home site is on Mount Vernon Place in Baltimore, Maryland. On January 11, 1843 the author of The Star Spangled Banner died in the mansion which stood on this site, the home of his daughter, Elizabeth and her husband, Charles Howard. He was originally interred in the Howard family vault in Old St. Paul's Cemetery in Baltimore, but in 1866 he was moved to his family's plot in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Frederick, Maryland. In 1872 the Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church was built on the site of Howard's mansion. There is a plaque commemorating Key's association with the site.
