2018 has been an amazing, record year for Poe Baltimore. Not only will we once again welcome over 12,000 visitors to Poe’s house, but programming continues to be our focus in the coming year, including a new honor to celebrate Poe’s legacy in the arts, and the return of Poe Fest International. Our Poe-nation Donation Holiday Drive will help us fulfill Poe Baltimore’s mission to keep Poe House open to visitors and celebrate Poe’s legacy in Baltimore and beyond. We have a $5000 funding goal and we need you to help us keep Poe’s chamber door open and support planned Poe Programming in 2019! Even PAVERS have returned, along with more fun rewards for donations.

As though you needed another wonderful reason to support Poe Baltimore, we’re excited to share news of  The Saturday ‘Visiter’ Awards, celebrating Poe’s enduring legacy for a new generation of artists and writers. Call for entries will open on Poe’s birthday in January. Holiday items and ornaments have also arrived at Poe House, and the date for our POEZELLA birthday bash for Poe has been set! Click here to learn about all our happenings, and don’t forget to make Poe Baltimore part of your Holiday and end-of-year giving.

Yours in Poe,
Enrica Jang
Director, Poe Baltimore

    Minor correction on the map marker. Prior to Poe’s Aunt and cousin moving to Amity Street, their rental was on the southwest corner of Eastern and Exeter, not in the middle of the block. The building was torn down and the location has been a parking lot for decades. This coincides with the description in Van Cleef’s article “Poe’s Mary”, in which Mary and Poe flirted by waiving handkerchiefs from the garret windows of their respective homes. In that article, she doesn’t exactly remember the street name and it was printed as Essex. She actually lived on Exeter Street one half block north of Eastern (Wilks).
