The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore will reopen in October. The museum closed in September 2012 due to lack of funding. The new museum will focus on the story of Poe in Baltimore, as well as on the house itself.

More from the Huffington Post:

Ann Barton Brown, one of two museum consultants hired to recommend a plan for interpreting the Poe house for visitors, said the assignment proved a welcome challenge.

“We are trying to preserve as much of the spirit of Poe in the house as possible,” she said, “so when you go in, you really feel Poe.” The narrative, she said, will also talk about what Baltimore was like while Poe was living here.
