The Mark Twain House & Museum
The Mark Twain House and Museum was the home of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain) from 1874 to 1891 in Hartford, Connecticut. The architectural style of the 25-room house is Victorian Gothic. The house is also notable for the major works written during his residency, including The Gilded Age, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper, Life on the Mississippi, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, A Tramp Abroad, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. In 1962, the building was declared a National Historic Landmark. Since 1974, it has had a multimillion-dollar renovation and an expansion dedicated to showcasing Twain's life and work.
