The Robert Louis Stevenson Silverado Museum in St. Helena, California is a must see for fans of the author of Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and so many other classics. That a writer from Scotland should be honored in this small (and exceptionally friendly) town seems surprising unless one knows that Stevenson and his American wife honeymooned in the area in 1880. Included in the collection are many of Stevenson's personal items, including his lead soldiers from childhood, his chess set, and pocketwatch. Original letters written in his own hand are on display, and there are many works of art and photographs that chronical the whole of Stevenson's life. No admission is charged, but donations are accepted.
