Edgar Allan Poe Museum
Opening Hours:
Wed-Sat 12pm-3:45pm



The little house at 203 Amity street (originally No. 3 Amity) was presumably built around 1830 for Charles Klassen. Late in 1832 or early in 1833, Maria Clemm (aged 43) moved from East Baltimore to the countryside. Her household included herself, her ailing mother (Elizabeth Cairnes Poe, aged 73), her daughter (Virginia Eliza Clemm, aged 10) her nephew (Edgar Allan Poe, aged 23) and perhaps her son (Henry Clemm, aged 14). (Henry Clemm should not be confused with Poe’s brother, also named Henry, who died in 1831. Little is known about Henry Clemm, who appears to have gone to sea by 1836 and of whom there seems to be no further mention. According to Amelia Poe, in a 1910 letter to John H. Ingram, Henry Clemm died young and unmarried.)
