“…walking into Poe’s Baltimore home is both disturbing and ethereal.”

The Edgar Allan Poe House, a National Historic Landmark, is open to visitors throughout the year. Please visit our events page to check for holidays or special event schedules.

Poe’s home is in an excellent state of preservation with much of the exterior and interior original fabric from the 1833-1835 period when Edgar lived there with his aunt, grandmother and two cousins. While the house is not furnished, visitors walk on the same floors, stairs and wander within the original plaster walls and woodwork that Edgar lived with.

Exhibits tell the story of Edgar Allan Poe’s life and death in Baltimore and significant artifacts such as Edgar’s portable writing desk and chair, and a telescope, china and glassware used by Edgar when living with the Allan family in Richmond, Virginia. Changing exhibits and tours are scheduled from time to time.

Poe Baltimore is an affiliate of the American Writers Museum.
