As a die hard Little Women fan, it was so special to visit Alcott’s home with no one other than my first intro to her books, my mom. This place is just lovely. Every single staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Our tour guide, I believe their name was Hannah, was so so patient, beautifully passionate about the subject, and didn’t hesitate to answer questions. I love how the tour incorporates everything from Alcott’s history to the 2019 film adaptation. The exterior is also very picturesque and the gift shop is honestly worth the stop. A gift shop employee even helped my family and I with directions and locating the free Concord shuttle! This place met my expectations and transcended them. It’s also just a short, maybe fifteen minute walk to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where Alcott is buried. Oh and PS: if you’re taking public transit from Boston, just catch the train into Concord, saves a lot of confusion :)
We visited this amazing place as part of our research of my husband's ancestors. In the mid 1660s John Hoar owned this property and built the house that was eventually renovated by the Alcott family. He was a bit of a hero for his time. It was very interesting coming to the property with a different set of history and learning all about what the Alcott family did with the buildings after 1850. The tour was very informative. Having the house filled with their actual belongings made it all that much more interesting.
