Poe house named a literary landmark

BALTIMORE (AP) — A national association representing libraries honored the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore.

A division of the American Library Association has added the Poe house to its national registry of Literary Landmarks. The museum hosted a dedication ceremony on Sunday, which coincided with the celebration of the 211th anniversary of Poe's birth.

The house is the first literary site in Maryland to be included in the registry, the organization said.

The master of Gothic horror lived at the Baltimore house as an adult from 1833 to 1835. It became a museum in 1949 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971.
