The Poe Museum is helping to usher in the holiday season with a special event of our own on Friday, December 2nd.
Our Enchanted Garden will be looking extra-enchanted with thousands of Christmas lights and assorted decorations.
There will be hot cider as well as tea, coffee and gingerbread for sale, and we’ll also have some free food.
Live music with a holiday twist will be provided by Beggars of Life.
We’ll also be visited by Poe’s mother, Eliza Poe (as portrayed by the lovely Debbie Phillips) and will be debuting a new exhibit in honor of the 200th anniversary of Mrs. Poe’s demise.
Miss Emmeline Edens, a lovely 19th century lady will also be on hand to assist with trimming our Christmas tree and to tell people a little about Christmas in her time.
So come on out to this event and pick up some presents for the Poe fan in your life in our shop while you’re at it – we have everything from ornaments and parasols to busts of Poe and a wonderful assortment of books.
Admission is free and holiday cheer is guaranteed! (We’ve even gotten a mention in RVANews!)
