Enjoy a fall trip to New England to visit the homes of two of Americas most important nineteenth-century authors: Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe.

On this literary trip we will tour the house where Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) and his family lived from 1874 to 1891, a period the author later called the happiest and most productive of his life.

We will also visit Harriet Beecher Stowes Victorian-style Hartford home, located next door to Twains house in an area known as Nook Farm. Stowe lived here from 1873 until her death in 1896. Our interactive guided tour will explore Stowes life and how it led her to write her most famous novel, Uncle Toms Cabin, published in 1852. In 2016-2017, the Stowe house underwent its first major interior restoration in nearly fifty years. A

delicious catered box lunch will be provided at the Mark Twain House. Please note that this trip involves some walking from the parking area and between museums. The Mark Twain House has three stories and no elevator and the Harriet Beecher Stowe House is not ADA-accessible.

Cancellation Policy: Refunds will be given only if space can be filled by another guest prior to trip. A waiting list will be compiled, and available spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Only those with who have made full payment can be accommodated.
