Edgar Allen Poe's death in Baltimore remains shrouded in mystery, but the years he spent living in the city are well documented, thanks largely to Jeff Jerome, curator of the Poe House and Museum.

Due to extensive renovations the Poe House was closed, but now check the website for further details.
