St. John’s Church’s cemetery is the final resting place of Elizabeth Arnold Poe, Edgar Allan Poe’s birth mother and an accomplished stage actress in her day. Eliza was known for her theatrical versatility, her comedic skill, and her beautiful singing voice. She was twenty-four when she passed away in Richmond in 1811, and at the time of her death she was on her way to achieving national stardom. Eliza Poe will tell about her tragically short life story and perform selections from her vast repertoire.

Cost is $6.00 for adults; $5.00 for seniors; $4.00 for ages 7-18; free for under 7. Please call 804.648.5015 or email programs@saintjohns.cc for more information.
