The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore, MA, is nearing its demise. Reuters.com published an article today on the sad state of the museum’s finances. The small, unassuming brown building has been cut off from all public funding and has been relying on private donations to make up the $85 000 a year cost to operate. Jason Tomassini predicts the museum will close by June 2012. Sad news.
