Come to Nook Farm, Hartford’s most desirable neighborhood in the late 19th century, and take tours of both the Mark Twain House and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center.

In 1874 Samuel Clemens built a 25-room early Stick-Style mansion that would soon become the talk of the town. Within its walls, he would work on the novels that would change the face of American literature: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and The Pauper, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.

Across the lawn, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s elegant Victorian Gothic home, surrounded by award-winning gardens, was the famous writer’s final residence for her last 23 years. Having set the world on fire with her seminal abolitionist novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Stowe continued her boundary-breaking work in Hartford’s Nook Farm. Click here to learn more.

You can tour both impeccably restored homes, learn about the lives of their world-renowned residents, and discover how two Hartford neighbors changed literature and continued to shape a nation’s view of itself.

If you buy a full-price Harriet Beecher Stowe Center ticket and present it at the Twain House ticket desk, you will receive $3 off Twain House ticket price.
