The Mark Twain House turns 150!

To celebrate the Mark Twain House’s 150th Birthday, the Museum will be turning the streets of Hartford into our exhibition gallery for “It Happened In Hartford” – a multi-dimensional experience that uses history markers and a digital gallery to transporting visitors back in time to explore Hartford during the Clemenses era through to today.

HOLDING SPACE by Adrien Broom

The Mark Twain House & Museum is thrilled to host Adrien Broom’s photography exhibition HOLDING SPACE.

Adrien says: “As an artist, I believe this sediment and emotional energy remain in the historical houses I am photographing. The good and the bad, the failures and triumphs, the inspired and the mundane. My goal for this project is to tap into these lingering energies that have been imprinted on these places by extraordinarily creative people. Historical artists and writers, who through their lives and work have helped shape our culture today, are reflected back to us through their houses. Their homes are literal windows (and doors) to their souls.”
