The remnant of a N. Amity Street duplex built in 1830’s is the last surviving home in the city of Baltimore where Edgar Allan Poe lived with his family. The house is a National Historic Landmark and a United for Libraries Literary Landmark, the first designated as such in the State of Maryland. The house, now a popular museum, is open to visitors and operates within the bounds of one of the oldest public housing projects in the United States. House museum Director, Enrica Jang, will provide a brief history of this important site, including the significance of the house to Edgar Allan Poe’s history. She will share how Poe House survived development in the early part of the 20th century and discuss the future of Poe House as further development continues in the modern day.
