Current Preservation Work on The Edgar Allan Poe House
Friday Nov 15th, 2019
Did you know the Edgar Allan Poe House is just one of the many Baltimore City-owned #historicproperties that DGS repairs and maintains?
Today, we stopped by the Poe House, located at 203 N. Amity St, to check out the work that is being done as part of the ongoing effort to preserve the property. Current and upcoming work on the house includes: repairing and repointing the brick and chimney, installing a downspout in the rear of the house, reglazing and sealing windows, repainting the shutters, repairing the basement window lintel, and installing new front steps. Thank you to our contractors, The Durable Restoration Company, for all of their hard work on this project!
DGS encourages you to visit the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum / Poe Baltimore to get a glimpse into the life of Baltimore’s most prolific writer. The museum is open Thursday through Sunday from 11AM to 4PM. Head over to www.poeinbaltimore.org/museum to learn more about the museum!
