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.

We thought it was the museum of the writer Edgar Allan Poe. But it was the museum of another Poe, who was the businessman. Anyway, we enjoyed the free guided tour Very much and were able to feel the atmosphere of the upper middle class house. It worth going there.

The Poe House was the perfect place to tour on a cold, rainy December afternoon. Docents lead free tours throughout the day and provide information on the Poe family, the house, and the local area. The house and period furniture are beautiful. Reportedly, $70,000 went into the renovations and as a result, the house is a place of beauty. The... More
