Immortalized by Louisa May Alcott in the beloved classic, Little Women, Orchard House (c. 1670) is best known for being where the groundbreaking novel was written and set in 1868. One of the oldest, most authentically-preserved historic sites in the...more
I've been a Louisa May Alcott fan since my childhood (we won't talk about how long ago that was), so when I realized I was going to be close to the home she wrote Little Women in, I knew I needed to see it. I...More
Even people who are not fans of Little Women ... or any other of Louisa May Alcott's books ... will enjoy the tour of this home. Tour begins with a short video that, while dated, is still very interesting. Our tour guide was fantastic and...More
We did not already have a love of Little Women (tried to read as a kid but not a fan). Visitors watch a presentation (we came a little late so didn't see it but is more of a holding event because the tour included the...More

We made a quick stop at Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House... the tour of the house is fairly spendy and popular, but worth it to inspire reading in young ones. There is a cute gift shop with all kinds of trinkets from years gone by...More

Would recommend that you use an Uber driver to go to the Orchard House. Would also recommend that you go to some of the sights within walking distance (Concord Museum, etc.) to make the trip worth your time.
