Good news for fans of Edgar Allan Poe. The west Baltimore house where the great author lived as a young man is reopening -- at least for the month of October. The house, beset by financial trouble, has been closed since September 2012. It is now under the management of a new organization, Poe Baltimore, and will be open on weekends this month. The group plans to reopen the brick rowhouse at 203 N. Amity St. for good in the spring. Hours this month are noon-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
