AAA Editor Notes

Poe Museum is at 1914 E. Main St. Although Edgar Allan Poe never resided in the 1737 Old Stone House—Richmond’s oldest residence—he lived and worked in the area for much of his life. The museum features a complex of four buildings that house Poe’s manuscripts, clothing, childhood bed and rare first editions, along with a large-scale model of early 19th-century Richmond focusing on Poe’s life in the city. Guided tours are available.
$6; $5 (ages 60+ and students and military with ID).
Hours: Tues.-Sat. 10-5, Sun. 11-5. Closed major holidays.
