Alcott Quest: Boston, Orchard House, & Salem

These pictures are from a trip I took to Massachusetts in early October, 2003. I visited Louisa May Alcott's home in Concord, as well as her "girlhood" apartment in Boston-- where she actually only lived for a short while. But lucky web-viewer-- I took photos.

There are a few here that are not actually Alcott related, but since they are things I think Alcott would be interested in if she were around today, I'm leaving them here. They were part of the "day trip" I took through the Boston area.

Please do NOT link any websites directly to these images, but feel free to reproduce them on other websites as long as you give credit to me and a link back to Domestic Goddesses.
