Built in 1812, this wooden farmhouse was where Edgar Allan Poe spent the last years of his life, from 1846 to 1849. Poe wrote his most famous poetical works here, including "Annabel Lee," "The Bells," and "Eureka." Now restored to its original appearance, along with authentic period furnishings, the Poe Cottage is open to vistors and the general public. Film presentations and guided tours are offered.
