Baltimore City is stopping funds for the Edgar Allen Poe House. This will greatly affect tourism. Funding is used to celebrate Poe's works, Birthday and keeps his final resting place(Westminster Church) open to the public. Many people from around the world travel to Baltimore just to visit the grave of Mr. Poe. He is a legend. This will not be fair to his fans or to anyone else who come to admire the wonderful little cemetery and church.
People do not just go to this city for the Inner Harbor or go to a sporting event. They come to see Poe. They want to see the home where he lived his last days and visit his grave. Did Baltimore city forget there is a football team named after one of his famous works?
This decision should be reconsidered if you want to keep tourism booming in Baltimore City.
