The Poe House is a National Landmark located at 203 North Amity Street in Baltimore. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors (65+), active military with ID and students (ages 13-21) with ID.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore is one of the best preserved of the three existing domiciles where Poe lived (Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore), retaining much of its original woodwork, floors, plaster walls and hardware. Poe lived in the house from 1833 to 1835.

We’ll hope to see you, whether in person at the house OR as virtual visitors right here. Please keep your eye out here for great events and programs we’re planning!
