Saturday was part of the Edgar Allan Poe’s 205th birthday celebration. A museum in his honor, ‘The Poe House,” located at 203 Amity Street near the Martin Lutther King Jr. Boulevard opened for visitors to mark the special occasion. Usually, the museum is closed during the winter months. Poe, a internationally acclaimed poet, short story writer and novelist, lived in the house from 1833 to 1835.

As part of the festivities, dramatic readings of his works took place. Doing a really nice job of reading Poe’s famous poem, “Annabel Lee,” is Ms. Pearson, a Poe House volunteer.
