Poe is an unincorporated community in Marion Township, Allen County, Indiana. It was originally known as Williamsport.


Poe was first named Williamsport, in honor of landowner William Essig, but it was afterwards changed because the U.S. postal authorities refused to accept that name, there being another post office in the state with a similar name.


Poe is located at 40°56′09″N 85°05′13″W / 40.93583°N 85.08694°W / 40.93583; -85.08694.
