The 1897 Poe House will be open for the Holiday Jubilee from 1-4 p.m. and decorated for a Victorian Christmas providing a beautiful backdrop for this festive event. Visitors may view the first floor only, which includes the parlor, sitting room, and dining room, for a small donation of $2 per adult and $1 per child age 5-12. Occupancy will be limited to 15 people in the house at one time, and visitors must wear a cloth face mask and observe social distancing guidelines.
Visitors are encouraged to follow the “Three Ws” as outlined by the N.C.
