  • Amazing your from only the best at the National Park Service. This iconic house is open and accepting guests for group and individual tours, with or without a tour guide. A supreme example of Philadelphia life in the times of Edgar Allan Poe.
  • Cool bit of history. Tucked away on Spring Garden. EAP was at his most prolific while living in this house.
  • It is my favorite place to go and think. I like sitting in the little room on the 2ed floor right when you come u the steps. I dint know what the room was for because it's 5 foot by 5 foot we're little window and when I asked the people they said no it's not a closet so I like sitting in there and thinking and doing my road and in there and also I like sitting in the basement it is a great place to go and think! Its like You're in a place of a great man who had such great knowledge. Is a amazing feeling
  • Really run down and shabby. Honestly surprised at the exterior of the building. Recommend taking a pass.
  • Very cool. You're free to explore the house room by room and learn about his time and activities there.
