From February to December 1826, Edgar Allan Poe lived in this dorm room (#13) on the West Range of the University of Virginia. Poe was 17 years old, had a penchant for drinking, and had to drop out of school due to lack of funds.

In 1920, the room was restored to its 1826 look (complete with Poe's bed from his days of living with his adoptive family, the Allans). Today, the room is maintained by the Raven Society of the University of Virginia. The room's interior can be viewed from the exterior through a large glass window.
