We stopped here on the way back, and was shocked so few people were in attendance at our only American playwright to win a Nobel Prize.

Open only for limited hours and days, but well worth a visit. The scene of several great Eugene O'Neil's plays and his boyhood summer home. Owned by the O'Neil Theater Center and staffed by knowledgeable guides. A real treat for theater buffs.

My husband and I teach English so we always hit literary attractions. This is the childhood home of Eugene O'Neill. It is a "must see" for anyone who enjoys his works.
