Camden, NJ, is the place Whitman called home for the last 20 years of his life. Whitman's home on Mickle Street has been preserved and retains many of the original possessions owned by Whitman. In the last few years of his life, Whitman designed his own tomb. He faced considerable scrutiny for the very hefty 1892 price of $4,000 for the tomb. Although the tomb only has Walt Whitman's on it, inside lie his mother and father, brother George, his wife and child, and Whitman's other brother Edward. Also at Harleigh Cemetery, not far from Whitman's tomb is the grave for Horace Traubel and his wife, Anne Montgomerie Traubel.
At the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, is the renowned Thomas Eakins portrait of Whitman, painted in 1887.
