Edgar Allan Poe Cottage
Edgar Allan Poe spent the last years of his life, from 1846 to 1849, in the Bronx at Poe Cottage, where he penned many of his most enduring poetical works, including “Annabel Lee,” “The Bells” and “Eureka.” Regular tours are offered of the cottage, which has been restored to its original appearance.
Outdoors & Recreation
Named after the great American poet and author who once resided there, visitors to Poe Park can check out the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage—a house where the writer, who moved often, lived in 1846 while writing works such as "The Bells" and "Annabel Lee." Tours covering Poe's work in the house and the end of his life are available on weekends.
