This year's exhibit at the Gorey House is about Gorey's reading, writing, and illustrating murder mysteries. The exhibits are fascinating, with brilliant texts. The house itself is wonderful, too.

We picked a rainy day to visit and, while it was a great indoor activity, everyone else had the same idea and it was pretty crowded. Because this is an actual house, the rooms are fairly small and it doesn't take much to feel as...More
