The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us on a Daytrip to Explore

Literary History in Hartford, CT
at the Homes of Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe

When: Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Where: Leaves the Historical Society of Rockland County parking lot, 20 Zukor Road, New City, at 8:00 AM and returns to the HSRC at 5:30 PM (rain or shine)
Price: $109/person (HSRC Members); $119/person (Non-members). Includes all admissions, tour fees and tips, and a delicious catered box lunch.

Enjoy a fall trip to New England to visit the homes of two of America’s most important nineteenth-century authors: Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe.

On this literary trip we will tour the house where Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) and his family lived from 1874 to 1891, a period the author later called the happiest and most productive of his life.

We will also visit Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Victorian-style Hartford home, located next door to Twain’s house in an area known as Nook Farm. Stowe lived here from 1873 until her death in 1896. Our interactive guided tour will explore Stowe’s life and how it led her to write her most famous novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, published in 1852. In 2016-2017, the Stowe house underwent its first major interior restoration in nearly fifty years.

A delicious catered box lunch will be provided at the Mark Twain House.
Please note that this trip involves some walking from the parking area and between museums. The Mark Twain House has three stories and no elevator and the Harriet Beecher Stowe House is not ADA-accessible.
