The Poe Museum began over a century ago when Edgar Allan Poe collector and researcher James Howard Whitty and a group of literary enthusiasts met in Poe’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia to create the state’s first monument to a writer.

Today, the Poe Museum boasts the most comprehensive collection of Poe-related artifacts and provides numerous events, programs, and resources to scholars and guests around the world.
