Ralph Waldo Emerson House

The Concord Massachusetts home of American philosopher, essayist, poet and lecturer Ralph Waldo Emerson and his family. It was here that Emerson gathered a community of individualistic thinkers, writers, and artists, as he became a cultural leader of the literary “American Renaissance” and the transcendentalist movement. The house contains Emerson’s original furniture and objects, much as he left it.

Reopened as of September 3, 2021!
