Celebrate the legacy of a literary icon at The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum. The museum is housed in the quaint dwelling at the corner of North Amity Street in the Poppleton neighborhood that Poe called home from 1833-1835. It’s in this house that Poe wrote some of his most enduring works of prose. Stop by and tour the place where Poe rested his head and put pen to paper.
