Poe’s home in Baltimore is where the famous writer transitioned from poetry to writing short stories. Poe won his first literary award in Baltimore during his residence here. The National Historic Landmark House 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. 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.
