We found this museum looking through points of interest in fayetteville...what an excellent find. The house was beautiful. Although it was lived in until 1988, it has been restored to it's original state. The young woman, I believe her name was Abby, who conducted the tour was informative. She gave us plenty of time to look at all the artifacts... More

What a fun piece of history tucked away right here in Fayetteville, and it's free! Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable guide who was able to share so many tidbits of information and answer all of our questions. I'm not sure that this would interest smaller children, but any kid old enough to appreciate a look back in time would... More

I have been to several outdoor plays there. Bring your own chair. It can get a bit noisy. Sometimes the traffic drowns out the actors' lines. It's a cozy place. The actors come around and say "hello" and "thank you" after the plays.

My 2 teenage boys have been interested in Edgar Allen Poe the last couple of years. They saw the museum and the 1897 Poe House and have been begging for a month to go. It totally popped their bubbles when they found out it was Edgar Allen Poe, a local Fayetteville, NC business man, not Edgar Allen Poe, the famous... More

A great museum and historical site! We arrived in time for the tour and were told about the history of Fayetteville as well as the Poe family. The time-period Christmas decorations were still up which was really cool for my preschool-aged nieces. We all really enjoyed this!

My mom and I went to the Poe House while they still had their Christmas decorations up. It was a very pleasant tour. For me personally it is just a one time type of event to do.

If you're around the downtown area, and enjoy historical homes, this is worth seeing. Educated staff. Don't let the name fool you - it has NOTHING to do with Edgar Alan.

This is a lovely small house and museum. The Poe referred to is not Edgar Allen but still a nice quality museum. If you are looking for a bit of history and culture, drop by.
