Home of Bronson Alcott and his daughter Louisa May, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and children's author Margaret Sidney, the home is now a National Park Service museum. This website provides biographies of the authors, the history of the house, and an online tour of the home's exhibits. Such a website can give students a different perspective into the lives of authors.
