The Mark Twain House & Museum Hartford
The beauty of the family home, and the sharing of the intimate details of the life of Mark Twain and his family come to life during the guided tour given by knowledgable docents with a passion for this site.
... that time and the people living there (as if it is in tjose years) Amazing performance of Susy, who stayed in character all the time and showed a brilliant view of 'her' life while she was staying at the house.

This is a wonderful site for anyone interested in mid-century modern architecture, modern art, or an exceedingly unusual stroll in beautiful Connecticut countryside.
