Learn about a famous illustrator and puppeteer at Edward Gorey House, a house museum dedicated to the life and work of this eccentric American artist. Gorey lived in the 200-year-old house for the last 14 years of his life; today, it features a collection of his sketches, etchings, and personal effects, plus a host of bizarre artifacts the author collected in the last years of his life. In keeping with Gorey's ardent support of animal welfare, the museum also houses a number of cats and frequently features animal-themed exhibits.
