Special Places goes to Mark Twain Museum and Harriet Beecher Stowe Center on Nov 18
“Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." a quote of Mark Twain's. Let's visit his home where he wrote some of his great stories, raised his children, felt poverty and more. This was a place where he had great success in his writings, entered into a failed business, and felt the tragedy of his daughter's death. Afterwards, he was not able to return to it and it was sold. Mark Twain witnessed the expansion of the country, saw greed become the norm, lived during the industrial revolution and so much more. Walk in his footsteps as we visit his home. We will see their living areas, the children's room, and so much more. Definitely a place to visit. His neighbor was Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," she lived here from 1871 for over 23 years. We will learn about these two authors and how they affected our society and culture with their writings.
