The Edgar Allan Poe Museum | website | fb
Called "America's Shakespeare," Edgar Allan Poe created or mastered the short story, detective fiction, science fiction, lyric poetry and the horror story. His dark genius has invited children and adults to read and love literature for over 150 years.
Richmond, Virginia's Poe Museum boasts the world's finest collection of Edgar Allan Poe's manuscripts, letters, first editions, memorabilia and personal belongings. The Poe Museum provides a retreat into early nineteenth century Richmond where Poe lived and worked. The museum features the life and career of Edgar Allan Poe by documenting his accomplishments with pictures, relics, and verse, and focusing on his many years in Richmond.
Opened in 1922, in The Old Stone House, the museum is only blocks away from Poe's first Richmond home and his first place of employment, the Southern Literary Messenger.
Poe Foundation of Boston| website | fb
The purpose of the Edgar Allan Poe Foundation of Boston is to honor Poe and his role in the cultural heritage of the city where he was born on Jan. 19, 1809.
The goal of the Poe Foundation of Boston is to enhance public understanding of the bond between Poe and his birthplace, and of the foundational role the complex relationship plays in the cultural heritage of Boston, New England and the nation. The primary activity of the foundation is to serve as the lead proponent of a public art project to permanently commemorate Poe in the city. The Poe Foundation sponsors walking tours of "The Raven's Trail" in the fall and at other times by special arrangement. It also hosts an annual Poe birthday celebration and a lecture by a Poe scholar in January at the Boston Public Library.
