The Mark Twain House Issue Date: 12-02-2001

Cool Spots imageThe Mark Twain House, an architectural oddity that belonged to one of America's most beloved writers, is open to you at www.marktwainhouse.org. This monumental site features a virtual tour of Twain's Hartford, Conn., home, complete with quotes from Twain biographers and the man himself. The tour takes you everywhere, from the entrance hall to the billiard room to the master bedroom where you'll find, as Twain put it, "the most comfortable bedstead that ever was." Milestones in Twain's life at Hartford are spread across a timeline in the History section. In the Just for Kids section, you can try to find all of the names of Twain's cats in a word search. What Twain once said about the city of Hartford is true about this Web site: "You do not know what beauty is if you have not been here."
