Louisa May Alcott Home, Concord Mass

Louisa May Alcott's father, Bronson Alcott, was an educational reformer who believed in a broad education for all, including girls. Here at the Alcott family home in Concord Lousia spent much of her time learning from some of the great minds of early America. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were among the network of American intellectuals that lived nearby.

Louisa penned "Little Women" in the upstairs room here.
