Edgar Allan Poe Cottage

BRONX. The last home of America’s first, and perhaps greatest, gothic writer, this Colonial-style cottage is located in an area that was once known as Fordham Park. The home, which dates from 1812, served as Edgar Allan and Virginia Clemm-Poe’s home until she died of tuberculosis in 1847. Among the Poe memorabilia you’ll see here are original manuscripts, personal items and a unique collection of antique furniture.
