Orchard House


Author Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) lived in Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts with her family for nearly 20 years and is thought to have written her classic novel Little Women there. Now a National Historic Landmark, Orchard House is preserved much as it was when the Alcotts lived there. Visitors can tour the home and imagine how the family lived.
