Description and history
Henry David Thoreau moved to this home in 1850 with his family; he stayed until his death on May 6, 1862. After the death of her mother Abby May, Louisa May Alcott purchased the home for her recently widowed sister Anna Alcott Pratt. Louisa also moved to the house, along with her father Amos Bronson Alcott. It was in this home that Louisa wrote her novel Jo's Boys (1886), a sequel to Little Women (1868).((citation needed|date=May 2017}}
Today, the home remains privately owned.
