Transcript SU A TOUR OF PLACES IN BALTIMORE ASSOCIATED WITH EDGAR ALLAN POE The Visitor to Baltimore who is interested in the Baltimore places associated with Edgar Allan Poe is urged to hire a cab for the expedition, since the places are not within easy walking distance of each other. The place to begin is Church Home and Hospital, called Washington Hospital in Poe's day, at 100 North Broadway. A plaque in the lobby of the old building notes the fact that Poe died here Sunday, October 7, 1849. An additional plaque half way up a stairwell to the second floor marks what is believed to be the location of the room in which he died, the location prior to the remodeling of the building. Next, one should visit the famous statue of Poe by Sir Moses Ezekiel erected by the Poe Memorial Association in 1921 at the South end of Wy- man Park just North of the corner of Howard Street and 29th Street Next, one should take a look at the old Latrobe house at 11 W. Mulberry Street, between Cathedral and Charles, the first floor of which is now occupied by Fallon and Hellen Furniture Company. A plaque outside the building notes that here Poe received his first public recognition, a prize of fifty dollars for his story, "MS. Found in a Bottle," awarded by the Baltimore Saturday Visitor. The building itself is not open to tourists. Poe's grave is to be found in the churchyard of Westminster Presbyterian Church at Fayette and Greene Streets, right at the corner of those streets. He was buried there Monday, October 8, 1849, in the Poe family lot behind the church: a stone marks his original burial ground. The present tomb was made possible through funds collected by Miss Sara Sigour- ney Rice, elocutionist and English teacher at the Western Female High School, and was dedicated November 17, 1875. Poe was re-buried beneath the new monument shortly before this. Prior to this time, his grave was unmarked, as the tombstone his cousin Neilson Poe had ordered for him was broken in a railroad car derailment before it was erected. The house where Poe is known to have lived from the spring of 1832 or 1833 until July 1835 is located at 203 N. Amity Street, just around the corner from the 900 block of West Lexington. Here he lived with his Grandmother Poe, his aunt, Maria (Poe) Clemm, and her daughter, Virginia Clemm, Poe's first cousin who in 1836 became his wife. It was while he lived here that Poe was working on such short stories as "Berenice," "Morella," "King Pest," "Shadow," "Mystification," and "Hans Pfaal." Arrangements are being made to have tours here for members of the SIXTH WORLD FANTASY CONVENTION. TOURISTS ARE URGED NOT TO WALK AROUND IN THE ABOVE MENTIONED PARTS OF BALTIMORE ALONE. UNPLEASANT INCIDENTS ARE RARE, BUT DON'T TAKE CHANCES! ■RHHI
