ABOUT

On October 5, 2014, "Poe Returning to Boston" was unveiled at Edgar Allan Poe Square: the corner of Boylston Street and Charles Street South in Boston. Artist Stefanie Rocknak designed the life-sized statue of the writer. Its funding and installation were overseen by the Edgar Allan Poe Foundation of Boston in honor of the writer's birth in this city on January 19, 1809. 

Following the successful achievement of its primary objective, the Poe Foundation of Boston filed for dissolution in December 2014 and formally dissolved on April 22, 2015.

The members of the Foundation's Board of Directors and Advisory Board are grateful to Stefanie Rocknak and to supporters in Boston, New England, the United States, and around the world for their assistance in this historic project.
