Country Living (USA)
Louisa May Alcott’s real childhood home in Concord, Massachusetts, inspired the Marches’ family home in the novel. Louisa’s father, Amos Bronson Alcott, purchased the land in 1857, enticed by the nearby apple orchard and idyllic space for his growing family. Louisa grew up with her mother, Abigail May, and three sisters, Anna, Elizabeth, and Abigail, all of whom inspired the characters in Little Women. You can take a tour of the original structure, which dates to the 1600s, and find inspiration in its 19thcentury decor, which has been largely preserved.
