Haunt Poe This Halloween
Start off at the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum where the master of macabre once lived. Then, visit Poe’s grave at Westminster Hall, where he has been since he died. Then visit Church Hospital, where Poe breathed his last. The cause of his death is still debated. What is known is that he was found four days earlier delirious, on the streets in someone else’s clothes.
Check out the collection of Poe’s papers, letters, and images at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
By now you’ll want a drink to calm you: try a house drink at the Annabelle Lee Tavern. We suggest “The Pit and the Pendulum.” Then, go and check out the Poe statue at the University of Baltimore’s law school.
End your evening at the last place Poe was seen alive: The Horse You Came In On Saloon. And if you find yourself deliriously walking the streets and don’t want to risk driving home, check into the Poe Suite of Scarborough Fair Bed & Breakfast.
Or, just curl up with a book of Poe.
