  • We went on the 30-minute Emerson and Hawthorne centered tour with Victor. It was great! Only $5 and we got to see where Emerson wrote Nature and where both authors' careers set off! Victor was very patient with us while we took pictures and explored really more than we should have. He is very knowledgeable about the house and its residents! Loved it! Its inspiring to be there.
  • A really cool view of the bridge and some unique history with several authors. For sure worth a checkout. But don't bring young kids as they will want to play in the water off of the wobbly dock.
