  • Great museum, formerly Emerson and Hawthorne resided here. Close to Concord Bridge. The area is steeped in history. Very enjoyable and near Concord center.
  • Walk in Emerson's family home. Next door to Minute Man National Park. Better than a history book, walk in their footsteps.
  • I always enjoy historical sites, but the curators here really know they're taking about and can answer lots of questions. If you're a revolutionary war buff, you have to check it and the bridge nearby out where "the shot heard round the world" was fired. The grounds and house are also kept up well for how the house is. Make sure to ask about the "texting" left.
  • Neat historical site.Nice to see where some famous American writers lived.
  • Really informative tour. Love the diamond carved windows. Lots of interesting history and personal tidbits. Cool wallpaper to boot!
