The Orchard House
Home of Louisa May Alcott.
The Orchard House is located on the historical road to Lexington also known as the Minute Man National Historical Park. It is a perfect example of Victorian architecture. Family conversations about abolitionism, women's suffrage and social reform were often held around the dining room table. The Alcotts were vegetarians and harvested fruits and vegetables from the gardens and orchards found on the 12 acres of property. Family china, portraits of Elizabeth and Louisa, and paintings by May are displayed along with period furnishings.
