This historic home in Concord was a hotbed of American literary activity in its time. Over the years, it housed Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and Margaret Sidney. The National Park Service was quick to jump on it - it became the first piece of property with literary associations that the organization acquired. Stop by for a guided tour in season, and then proceed on to the next step in the Minute Man National Historical Park series.
