The Secret Charleston Life of Edgar Allan Poe
Experience Charleston through the eyes and mind of Edgar Allan Poe . . . if you dare.
Retrace his footsteps through alleys and graveyards on a guided walking tour exclusive to King Charles Inn. Hear the legends, learn of lost love and stroll past the sites that inspired Poe’s most enduring works. And along the way, uncover the entanglements with one of Charleston’s most prominent families and the source of Poe’s lifelong obsession with the city.
Pat Conroy said it best: “I like to think of him walking the streets of Charleston as I walk them and it pleases me to think the city watched him, felt the shimmer of his madness and genius in his slouching promenades along Meeting Street."
