Anne Spencer House and Gardens

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

Step into "Edankraal," the studio of this late poet of the Harlem Renaissance, and the place where Anne Spencer wrote her most significant poems. Hers is the only work of a Virginian to appear in the Norton Anthology of Modern American and English Poetry. A librarian at one of Lynchburg's segregated black schools, Spencer (1882–1975) penned most of her work in this back-garden sanctuary, which has been left completely intact with her writing desk, bookcases, mementos,

and walls tacked with photos and news clippings.
