Although this wasn’t the Edgar Allen Poe we thought, the home was still really pretty and interesting. This man actually went by E.A. Poe probably so others wouldn’t be confused like I was. The home was very well restored (I guess the restoration cost $600,000) the last alive daughter of EA Poe, Lily actually gave the state of North Carolina the house after she passed and wanted it to be a museum. It doesn't cost anything to visit which is nice. The tour guide also said during Christmas they deck the whole house in Christmas trapping and they even have women making Christmas cookies in a original cast iron stove.
If you are in Fayetteville I would recommend seeing the Musuem of the Cape Fear (misleading Edgar Allen Poe house and everything.) It takes you though the history of the Native Americans, colonist, civil war, etc all in the Cape Fear region of North Carolina. There is also a park called Arsenal Park located on the ground which I plan on visiting soon. And they have a really cool gift shop. This outfit is a simple but affective one. I also enjoy the length of the skirt, usually I don’t wear knee length skirts or dresses but I like this one. I have actually had this dress since high school and I love experimenting with my clothes in new ways. Happy Monday.
