  • I’m a fan of Edgar Allan Poe and was excited to visit his home. It’s small and unassuming, but the Poe family seemed to enjoy living here, although his wife died of tuberculosis in this house...

  • The Fall of the House of Usher" it is my favourite short history. Thanks to Mr. Edgar Allan Poe.
  • For anyone who has an appreciation for poetry this is a must. Just knowing the history of this location and the fact that Edgar Allan Poe actually wrote some of his most famous poetry here is amazing. I think the Romanticism of it is the fact that this is in another age, things were different and the area was definitely not the same. This does show up as temporarily close I can't confirm that but if you're looking for more information on the cottage and the area in general you can look it up on the historicalsociety.org and poe cottage on Wikipedia.
