WELCOME to Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site

�For the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen,� so begins Poe�s famous short story �The Black Cat,� written while living in this house with his family. Writer, editor, popular poet and inventor of the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe still thrills readers today. Come imagine Poe�s life on Seventh Street, his only surviving residence in Philadelphia.
