Today Wilma and I Adventured to Thoreau Farm in Concord, Massachusetts. The home is also titled the “Wheeler-Minot Farmhouse/Henry David Thoreau Birth House”. As expected this home was the Birth House of Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau was a poet, and a philosopher. The property offers tours, but are currently closed due to COVID, however they are providing virtual tours online. In addition they have a partnership with the Thoreau Society for a writing program.
We had a short Adventure to the Thoreau Farm after a local walk. I was looking forward to visiting yet another historical homestead in the area. We parked and found one car in the parking lot, although saw no other visitors on our Adventure. We were greeted by a gorgeous tree, possibly a Catalpa, unique and spectacular. We wandered under the tree and headed over to the home. The home was simple but well kept. It had several gardens, benches, and a “monument” with a brief description of Thoreau and his work. We wandered around the home and appreciated the grounds. It was very small, but pretty in its own way. Wilma appreciated some happy rolls to celebrate our visit. So glad we could Adventure to the Thoreau Farm today (This Adventure will not be rated as only the grounds were explored.)
