Mark Twain Slept Here

By Linda Tancs

Mark Twain, the celebrated creator of such classic characters as Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, lived from 1874 to 1891 in a nineteen-room Victorian mansion in Hartford, Connecticut. A National Historic Landmark featuring interior decor designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany (of lamp fame), the property commemorates this year the 100th anniversary of Twain’s death and 125 years since publication of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Visit the billiard room where Twain did his writing and see the bed carved with angels where he slept. Who knows, maybe you’ll catch some inspiration.
