Baby Dedication Ceremony at the Museum!

This previous weekend may have been a Poe Museum first; a baby dedication was held in the museum’s Poe Shrine on Saturday morning. The family gave me permission to take photos, and the ceremony began just a few minutes after the museum opened. Afterward I asked the father of the child why he chose the museum for the ceremony, to which he replied, “Well, I’ve always been a fan of Poe, and this seemed like a good place. This is going to be around for a long time.” At one point I made the comment that I’d never really seen a baby dedication take place outside of a church before. The father said, “Just ask my oldest one. We held his dedication at the Lincoln Memorial.”
