The Poe House has made the news recently, first with monetary woes after Poe’s Baltimore home (owned by the City) received a slashed budget that left the house with an uncertain near future. Just a few days ago, the city Board of Estimates announced that the Maryland firm, Cultural Resources Management Group, will be awarded $45,000 to draft an operating and finance plan which will hopefully sustain the residence for years to come.
Poe lived at 203 Amity Street from 1832 to 1835.
