“To spend the day at their house was a rapturous event,” Ellen Emerson wrote to a friend in 1869, remembering her friends, the Alcott girls.
To mark the centennial of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, the Concord Museum places women at the center of political thought and action that reshaped the country in the early 20th century through a program highlighting the objects and homes of remarkable women including Louisa May Alcott and her dear friend Ellen Emerson. Beginning in the Concord Museum galleries, participants will have the opportunity to view significant historical objects including Louisa May Alcott’s tea kettle that she used while serving as a nurse for the Union Army. The program will conclude with a walk to Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s House where participants will hear stories of friendship and the quest for equality.
1-mile walk, mostly flat sidewalk or pavement, rain or shine. Meet at the Concord Museum.
Space for our popular walking tours is limited. Please reserve tickets in advance to ensure registration. Register here.
