The Orchard House
It was not in the plan, but was a happy find by chance that we found the house of Louisa May Alcott home "Orchard House" which is located in Lincoln, Massachusetts on the route to the Minute Men National Monument. Who is Louisa May Alcott? She is an American novelist who wrote the books Little Woman, Little Men, and Jo's Boys. She also wrote a book called Flower Fables. Little Woman was one of my favorite books as a child. The story is loosely based on her own life, but not autobiographical of her life in the 1800's; however, more specifically the 1860's so the book addresses the Civil War. Her parents were Transcendentalist which was a religious movement that believed that people were inherently good and were at their best when they were self-reliant. The story is about her and the lives of her 3 sisters. Sadly, we arrived too late to go inside the house and even if we hadn't the children were exhausted. Some day I would love to go back and see the inside of the house. "We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing." Louisa May Alcott.
The house might not look like much in these photos, but it is so darling.
I would totally want to live in this house.
