October 6 & 7th is “Death weekend” in Baltimore, commemorating the 169th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s mysterious death in 1849. Visit an interactive art installation at the historic Carroll Mansion, where Poe's body and casket will lie in state in a re-enactment of the dark and somber day Poe was laid to rest. Then, pay your respects at a special candle-light vigil for the master of horror and mystery.
Your admission includes the funeral re-enactment, candle-light vigil, plus a photography/painting exhibit and vendor room.
Ticket holders receive express entry to Carroll Mansion at their scheduled ticket time. Spaces are limited, so consider reserving today! NOTE: Death and funeral imagery (including body in an open casket), may not be suitable for young children. Viewer discretion advised.
The exhibit is presented by Jericho Vinegar Works et. al. in cooperation with Poe Baltimore and Carroll Museums. This event is made possible by a grant from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority and The Baltimore National Heritage Area.
