The Wayside, Home of Authors

The Wayside in Concord, Massachusetts is a literary landmark. Read about the literary families who have called it home, and see images of the house, the writers and the time period. 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.
