Yes, but he allegedly spent more than one drunken stupor there.  The
previous owners (whom I knew back then) claimed that he was inspired to
write "The Raven" when a pesky bird bothered him while there.  They used
to even have a stuffed raven in a display window there.  I don't know if
the new owners (who upgraded the place after buying it in the 1980's
sometime) got rid of the raven or not.
