Photographer's Note

Orchard House was the home of author Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888). This home is only a short distance from Concord Center. Enroute from town to this home you pass the home of Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882). Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) is also from Concord but more of that later...

Orchard House was the Alcott family's most permanent home (from 1858 to 1877). Louisa May Alcott wrote her classic work, Little Women, here in 1868 at a desk built by her father especially for her. She also set Little Women in this home, causing guests to comment that "a visit to Orchard House is like walking through the book!" There have been no major structural changes to the site since the Alcott’s time of residence.
