Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum
203 N. Amity St.
Closed for nearly a year, West Baltimore’s Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum is on track for an October reopening, under the auspices of the nonprofit Poe Baltimore group.
While the house itself and its interior will remain essentially unchanged — it’s a small space, and no one wants to change it fundamentally from what it was like when Poe lived there for a few years in the 1830s — officials promise some tweaks that will make for a more visitor-friendly experience. The emphasis will be on telling the story of Poe in Baltimore, and of the house in particular, through a well-marked walking tour and other interpretive exhibits.
