See where Poe wrote some of his greatest tales
The Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site is the only one of the poets Philadelphia homes that still survives. This was Poe’s residence in 1843 before he moved to New York City.
Visitors of the Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site can tour the stark rooms and cellar of the three-story home where Poe’s wrote and published some of his greatest works. The building also hosts exhibits on Poe’s family and his literary contemporaries, plus a theater that shows an informative eight-minute film.
In honor of Poe’s bicentennial in 2009, new exhibits were added to the already impressive collection, including “Edgar Allan Poe: His Life and Work”.
