Mark Twain House

Our last stop was in Hartford, Connecticut at the Mark Twain House.  Samuel Clemens, his wife Olivia, and their 3 daughters built and lived in this amazing house from 1874 to 1891 and this is where he wrote many of his classics, Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn are two of them.

The house had such a neat design but of course I was disappointed when we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside….

My favorite rooms were the little greenhouse (on the far left) and the billiard room (3rd floor where Samuel wrote most of his works)

Carrie and me

Our tour guide was awesome and really knew the ins and outs of the house and the family and had so many neat stories of how the Clemens’s lived.

How awesome is this Lego Mark Twain?? (oh and right next to this was a squished penny machine…total count is now up to 5!)

I would recommend stopping here if you are ever in the area! The house is beautifully restored and worth the stop!
