File:Poe House Fayetteville, NC.jpg

The Edgar Allan Poe House in Fayetteville, NC in 1897 by local business Edgar Allan Poe (not the famous writer). The home was lived in by the family until the 1980's. The house has been restored to how it would have looked in the Victorian age and is maintained by the Museum of the Cape Fear next door to it. Photo was taken after Winter Storm Pax.
