Concord Stories and Tips

Emerson's Home

Emerson's Home Photo, Concord, Massachusetts

This was an interesting tour. We were the only people on the tour, so we had special treatment. The rooms are all roped off, so it felt more like don't-touch than a have-a-look-around kind of atmosphere. They do NOT have air-conditioning, and it makes dog day tours rather miserable, but it is interesting to see everything that is in here. The guides were super friendly and knowledgeable. Apparently the family still owns the home, and their idea of preservation is “don't touch.” No photography is allowed inside the home. They are service dog-friendly, but have plenty of water with you if it is a hot day. My dog drank a whole bowl after this hot and humid visit.
