Museum
“Once upon a mid-night dreary ... Before you go, pick up a copy of Silverman's biography of Edgar Allan Poe ( or read the first few pages of the beside copy in our studio). You won't put it down and you won't miss the Poe Museum. In fair weather, don't miss the Poe Museum's weekly ":Unhappy Hour" on Thursdays for drinks in their ancient, eerily enchanting boxwood courtyard. The Poe museum collection is housed in the oldest residential property in Richmond, a charm of great gray stones, mortar, and slate. ”

“The best pie. In the fall, get the salted caramel pumpkin pie with gingersnap crust. In the winter, try their amazing hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows. Cherry pie in the spring, and lemon meringue in the summer. They also have handheld savory pies. The sausage rolls are the best. order to go and eat it in the park, the overlook of the city, or the historic cemetery. ”
