Whether you see it on its own or as part of a historical tour, Orchard House is a can’t-miss attraction. Louisa May Alcott fans, local history buffs and those with a general interest in the past will love visiting the Alcott home. Period details abound, from original family furnishings to the structure of the house itself, which has remained virtually unaltered since the Alcotts lived there from 1858 to 1877. You’ll particularly enjoy the warm and welcoming atmosphere on a frigid February day.
