Meet Virginia: A Death Day Commemoration, January 30th, 7 PM EST  (Virtual Event)

A virtual grave-side chat at Westminster Hall & Burying Ground on the Anniversary of Virginia Poe's Death. Visit Facebook Live or YouTube on January 30th at 7pm.

Commemorating the 200th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe's beloved wife, the Virginia Poe Bicentennial will include monthly virtual and in-person programs. Meet Virginia, Edgar Allan Poe's devoted wife (and first cousin.) Born August 15th,1822, she died January 30th,1847 and was buried in New York. Several years his junior, Virginia preceded her doomed husband in death. She lies in Baltimore, forevermore next to her darling Eddy at Westminster Hall & Burying Ground.  Join us virtually for a graveside chat at Westminster where we'll share the history of this obscure-yet-important figure in Edgar Allan Poe's family story and learn why the Poes had such a hard time finding a permanent place to rest their bones. 

 

This is the first of several monthly programs; visit often for upcoming programs and events. The Virginia Poe Bicentennial is presented by Poe Baltimore, Westminster Hall & Burying Ground, Maryland Women's Heritage Center, the Poe Cottage at Fordham (Bronx, NYC,) with generous help and participation from Poe Studies Association, The Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore and The Poe Museum (Richmond.)
