Recommended Website:

Louisa May Alcott is best known for writing her classic book, “Little Women.” At this site you can take a virtual tour of the Alcott family home called “Orchard House,” located in Concord, Massachusetts, where the book was written. If you have read the book, you’ll recognize many of the rooms and furnishings as Alcott used it as the setting for her book. The home has been preserved much as it was described by Alcott in “Little Women.”

When you get to the site, you will see an introduction. To take the virtual tour, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the words, “Tour the Rooms of Orchard House.” A new page opens with links to the Study, Kitchen, Dining Room, Parlor and to the Chambers of Louisa, her sister May, and their Parents.

When you are through taking the virtual tour, use the menu at the bottom of the page to go to the home page where you can access more information about Orchard House, Louisa May Alcott and her family, and even read a selection of quotes written by Alcott family members.

This is a great way to supplement a Language Arts curriculum that includes reading the novel, “Little Women.”
