My wife and I drove from a conference in Providence RI to Hartford to see these dwellings. I studied Mark Twain at Berkeley, so a chance to visit one of the places he lived was not to be missed. I had no Idea that 200 feet away was his neighbor Harriet Beecher Stowe! The museum that goes with the House is incredible, a journey through time with lots of photos and commentary by Mark Twain himself. Twain was the master of the twisted one liner. His house is an amazing piece of late 19th century building, with imported pieces from his travels to Europe and beyond. Stowe's house was more modest, but you learn that this woman was not only an abolitionist and suffragette, but a painter and advocate for a healthy life-style through proper nutrition. She was a century ahead of her time. A great look at the intimate life of two people who advocated for toleration in all societies. Lots of parking, restaurants within a few blocks as well.
