louisa may alcotts orchard house - home of the alcotts photoOrchard House is the former home of author Louisa May Alcott and her family.

Today, an amazing 75 percent of the furnishings in Orchard House are the Alcotts', so it remains almost exactly like it was when they lived there. Louisa became one of America's best- loved authors, and it was in this house that she penned Little Women.

The House is shown by guided tour only. The 30-minute tours are usually offered every half an hour every day from April 1st to October 31st. From November 1st through March 31st, please call on the day of your visit to check tour times. All tickets for the day's tours go on sale at opening and are sold on a 'first come' basis.
