Concord: Louisa May Alcott Orchard House

A $10.00 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!

Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House is a true pilgrimage site for all who treasure the classic novel, Little Women, written there in 1868. Orchard House not only served as the Alcott family home but was also the setting for Little Women. Built in 1690, the house has remarkable architectural authenticity, and with most of the original family artifacts, it feels as if the Alcotts just left. The warm, welcoming atmosphere evokes cherished memories of the characters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, while guided tours offer fascinating insights into the real-life family members who inspired them. See where Alcott theatricals were performed; marvel at artwork literally covering walls and doors; discover how the Alcotts participated in numerous reforms; and appreciate their contributions to literature, education, art, philosophy, and social justice.

Comments about Smart Destinations Concord: Louisa May Alcott Orchard House:

If you're a fan of Louisa May Alcott and Little Women, this place is for you. You'll see the very home where the book was written - even the writing desk! It's an added bonus to visit in the fall when the foliage is in bloom. The home is very close to Walden Pond and you can enjoy the downtown shops.
