Jan Turnquist, Executive Director

Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House (circa 1690) is most noted for being home to the talented Alcott family,

and is where Louisa May Alcott wrote and set her beloved classic novel, Little Women, in 1868.

Orchard House is one of the oldest, most authentically-preserved historic house museums in America, and brings the Alcott legacy in the fields of literature, art, education, philosophy, and social justice to life every day through highly-acclaimed tours, unique living history events, curriculum-based educational programs, and irreplaceable original family furnishings and archives.  Annually, more than 50,000 visitors from all walks of life and every corner of the globe experience Orchard House -- and discover what it means to be "home."

Open to the public and overseen by the not-for-profit Louisa May Alcott'S Orchard House, Inc. since May 27, 1912,

this treasured historic site now welcomes visitors in its second century!
