We enjoyed the visit of the house enormously - the tour guides had excellent knowledge of the author, his life and his work.

The wonderful docents give a very educational tour and share all kind of interesting information about Emerson, his family and friends. It is a lovely stop while exploring the area.

To see the house, we drove down a road stripped of pavement to the dirt to accommodate repair. There is little parking at the property. Fortunately, the Concord Museum across the street was closed for renovation so we parked there. We enjoyed seeing the house. People typically joined in the parlor and then dropped out when they'd seen everything -- strange setup, but effective. Instead of using a single docent, the speaker changed, depending upon what part of the house we were in.

On my last two visits to Concord, the house was not open on th day of the visit. As a retired English teacher, I was thrilled to finally visit. The house needs lots of work, and sadly one room wasn’t open due to a recent flooding issue. The docents were hospitable but not as engaging as others encountered at the other author’s houses we visited in New England. We did learn some interesting details about Ral;h Waldo and his family.

Lots of original stuff as this home is still in family hands. Not allowed to take pictures inside. Good information about the family. Definitely recommend.
