The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore will reopen in early October, ten months after losing municipal funding and shutting down for the first time since the Edgar Allan Poe Society opened it in 1949. Poe lived in the attic of the small brick row house—designated a National Historic Landmark in 1972—from 1933 to 1936. There, he penned tales as renowned as “MS. Found in a Bottle” and initiated his scandalous relationship with cousin Virginia Clemm. (Photo credit: Midnightdreary.)
