“I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow.” — Edgar Allan Poe

July Newsletter

"TRUE! --nervous --very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am;
but why will you say that I am mad?"

The Tell-Tale Heart

Traditionally, July is one of the busiest (and hottest!) months at Poe House. We will be closed on Thursday for the July 4th holiday, but we will re-open for regular museum hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday this weekend. A good thing, too, because we are bursting like fireworks to share with you news about upcoming events! 

Tickets for this year's International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards are on sale now! Admission to the festival is FREE, but VIP Death Weekend Bus Tours, Poe's Funeral Re-enactment, as well as our official party, The Black Cat Ball at Westminster Hall, are special (and LIMITED) add-ons you won't want to miss. We are also hosting a special festival program preview with Poe's Magic Theater at The Lord Baltimore Hotel, "Will You Say That I Am Mad?" to explore a feminine twist on Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart. Click here to get all the details about what you can expect at Poe House, the festival and beyond!

Yours in Poe,
