Whether you are a literary buff or you read his works in school, you have probably heard of Mark Twain before. But have you ever wondered what happened to his home?
For those who do not know, Mark Twain is considered by many to be one of the Great American Authors. As a result, his novels have found their way into classrooms around the country.
Novels like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Mysterious Stranger are still some of the most widely read books today. This is fascinating, considering this author passed away in 1910.
Mark Twain captured an age with his pen. His books give us a window into what people thought about literature over a century ago. It is no wonder that people were so interested in the place this talented author called home.
The home of Mark Twain is best described as whimsical and eclectic. The rambling mansion was designed by the architect Edward Tuckerman Potter to be the height of Victorian fashion.
This artful house fused Carpenter Gothic and Queen Anne styles to form what some refer to as Stick Style. But this gorgeous house was more than a stunning exterior. The indoors were equally well thought out.
