Edward Gorey House

The house that Edward Gorey lived in is now a cool museum devoted to him. It has the fur coat he wore, and receipts from the local diner where he went to eat and wrote up his own food orders. Displays his work and the things he owned. Cats lounge around everywhere. A must for Gorey fans.
