Park once and visit both houses!
Saturday and Sunday come to Nook Farm, Hartford’s most desirable neighborhood in the 19th Century and take a combined tour of both the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and The Mark Twain House.
Harriet Beecher Stowe’s elegant Victorian Gothic home, surrounded by award-winning gardens, was the famous writer’s final residence for her last twenty-three 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.
Across the lawn, in 1874, Samuel Clemens, a new celebrity known by the name “Mark Twain,” built a 25-room Picturesque Gothic 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 & The Pauper, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.
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.
Combined tours are offered every hour on the hour beginning on Saturday at 10 a.m. and on Sunday at 1 p.m. Last combined tour steps off at 4 p.m. on both days. Tour is approximately 90 minutes short! Offered only on Saturday and Sunday.

Seniors (65+) $21
Children (6-16) $15
