Homes of Literary Writers
Ever wonder where the famous literary writers live? Well, here's a glimpse of what their (outer) home looks like. By the way, these are wonderful places to visit on a short trip. George Orwell lived in a Scottish farmhouse with his son and this is where he wrote his final, and most famous novel "1984." Virginia Woolf lived in a 17th century Sussex cottage with her husband until her early death in 1941. "Mrs. Dalloway" was the novel written here. Mark Twain lived in a Victorian Gothic in Hartford, Connecticut, with his family. This is the place where "The Adventure of Tom Sawyer," "The Prince and the Pauper," and "Adventures of Huckleberry," find was born. Nathaniel Hawthorne lived in an 18th-century Colonial-style home in Concord, Massachusetts. In 1962, his Wayside was named a National Historic Landmark. Charles Dickens moved into a London home where he wrote "Olive Twist." In 1925 this home was made into a museum that still showcase some of the authors' things.

Thanks, @maymay75! It's so inspiring and fun to see these homes and picture the authors there, writing my favorite books. Have you seen Ernest Hemmingway's house in Key West? I went to visit once. It's a really cool place - and has many, many weird cats running around that share a genetic trait that gives them extra toes.

@sanityscout Thanks! And no, I haven't visit Hemmingway's house, but sounds like you really enjoyed it.

I've always wanted to visit Hemmingway and Dickens houses (though neither of them are my favorite authors, I just think their houses look so cool!)
