Edgar Allan Poe House in Baltimore Faces Closing

Edgar Allan Poe House in Baltimore Faces Closing – NYTimes.com

Even now, 162 years after his death here, Edgar Allan Poe still seems to be suffering from the kind of bad luck that haunted his life.

For a second year city leaders have chosen not to subsidize a museum in the tiny house where the impoverished Poe lived from around 1833 to 1835, a decision that means it may have to close soon.
