Edgar Allan Poe

University of Virginia Rotunda

When we took our forced trip last fall, when the house was being reworked, we stopped in Charlottesville, VA to see University of Virginia.  One this I was surprised to see was the "dorm" room of Edgar Allen Poe. They have left his room. I think only a very few of the seniors now get a room on the quad, but it was very cool.

Eddie and Rusty on the grounds. The low buildings on the right and left are dorms. The taller buildings were the old classrooms.

Outside on of the old dorms, is the notice that this was Edgar Allan Poe's old room. Room 13 is preserved as it would have looked then. Now they are more cramped, but still each has a fireplace.
