This first picture is of Nathaniel Hawthorne's house. The blurry people in front are Kim, Mark, and baby. Nathaniel lived next door to the Alcotts for a little while and was friends with Louisa's (Jo's) father. He would go for walks with the girls and talk to them about his love for nature. He was not in the book Little Women but his house gives you an idea of what the neighborhood looked like. (and maybe was her inspiration for the fictional wealthy neighbors home in Little Women) Nathaniel Hawthorne was another famous author from Concord Mass. He wrote The Scarlet Letter and many other books. We also visited his birth place in Salem Mass. while we were there. (and the House of 7 gables)
This one is the side view of Orchard House and Kimmy is out front.
This is the school of Philosophy that Louisa's (Jo's) father built and taught in. It is right in there backyard!
This is a blury postcard I scanned in. It is the front view of the Alcott home (Orchard House) the front was under construction when we visited. It's a beautiful home! Remolded from 2 buildings built before the revolutionary war! So it's OLD! Loisa wrote Little Women here in 1868. She had lived in the home for 10 years at that time.
This was Louisa's (Jo's) youngest sisters bedroom. She was an accomplished artist and would sketch on the walls. She has paintings in many of the rooms in the house.
Ok well those are all my pictures from Old Orchard house. I hope you liked them Emily!
