Historic Site Specialty Museum
Learn about a famous illustrator and puppeteer at Edward Gorey House, a house museum dedicated to the life and work of this eccentric American artist. Gorey lived in the 200-year-old house for the last 14 years of his life; today, it features a collection of his sketches, etchings, and personal effects, plus a host of bizarre artifacts the author collected in the last years of his life. In keeping with Gorey's ardent support of animal welfare, the museum also houses a number of cats and frequently features animal-themed exhibits. Make a four-legged friend and enjoy the shade of the large, rare southern magnolia in the yard of this charming museum.

  • A Fantastic little house of oddities and art. The staff was pleasant, friendly and informative. There is so much to see you may need to come back a second time. When you go don't forget to find all the dead children. We got a prize for completing the scavenger hunt. Great visit at a great price! Highly recommend the trip out.

  • Was interesting.. Didnt really know artist that well but college toon was cool.
  • Great old home with many Edward Gorey prints and history of his great career.
  • I loved my visit to the Edward Gorey house. It's a pleasant and creative place to spend an hour or two browsing. The house is run as a museum and the exhibits rotate, so there is always something new to see here. The small gift shop at the front is great for Edward Gorey lovers and even, more broadly, for cat lovers and poetry lovers!
