Ralph Waldo Emerson House reviews
We enjoyed the visit of the house enormously - the tour guides had excellent knowledge of the author, his life and his work. more »
The wonderful docents give a very educational tour and share all kind of interesting information about Emerson, his family and friends. It is a lovely stop while exploring the area. more »
This is an amazingly well preserved house. Been to a few of these types of houses over the years and they have a few items associated with their person or family living there and then some period pieces. This house was filled with stuff owned by Emerson and many rooms are as they were. The docents were very informative and friendly. If you are into Emerson or even Thoreau it is well worth the stop. If not, maybe not as it is presumed that you are familiar with his works. Not really sure why, but pictures are not allowed.
Classic philosopher/great thinker. Beautifully preserved home for all to visit. History still relevant today.
