“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” — Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe’s Birthday Event Canceled! We Need Your Help, Poe Nation.

Undone by the weather, Poe House's celebration for Edgar Allan Poe's 215th Birthday is canceled. On this of all days, help us weather the storm.

Donate to support the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum

  Due to inclement weather and University advisory, we are very sad to cancel The Poe Toaster Murder Mystery & Poe Birthday Event. Our disappointment is profound, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our ticket-holders. This was a sold-out event just a day before the weather hit Baltimore. Ticket-holders will be offered refunds and/or the opportunity to donate their tickets. We also appeal to you, Poe Nation, to help us for Poe's 215th Birthday.
Fellow lovers of literature, poetry, and history rightly imagine that working at an organization devoted to celebrating Edgar Allan Poe's legacy is a dream position. It is also a weighty responsibility, as Poe Baltimore's mission is to maintain and interpret the historic landmark and keep Poe's chamber door open to visitors. Programs can be whimsical and fun, but our greater purpose is to raise support within our community. The dedication of museum funds and countless staff and volunteer hours invested in planning make this cancellation a financial setback.
