Mark Twain House & Museum
As one of the premier destinations of American Literature enthusiasts, the Mark Twain House & Museum is not only dedicated to promoting the legacy of Samuel Clemens (1835-1910), but the many other celebrated authors (and their homes) found throughout New England! From the serenity of Thoreau’s Walden Pond to the quaint garden estate of Emily Dickenson.
Readers, history buffs and writers will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime journey through America’s literary landmarks. All located Between Boston and New York City.
Just a short 45 minute drive from NYC, travelers can begin their literary journey at the Walt Whitman Birthplace in West Hills, NY and over the course of six days (or less for those who are ambitious) visit the birthplace of Mark Twain’s most famous characters, get inspired by Edith Warton’s landscape design, and visit the gravesites of Thoreau, Hawthorne, Emerson and Alcott at Author’s at Sleepy Hollow.
