The 2018 season was very successful!

The 2018 season was very successful thanks to our more than 3,000 visitors from around the world. That included every state in the US but two, and countries that included Albania, Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tibet, and the United Kingdom. It is inspiring that Emerson continues to attract interested visitors, some of whom know him well, others who came to learn more about this man of thoughts and ideas still so relevant today.

Hours of Operation

The Ralph Waldo Emerson House is closed for the season and will reopen in April 2019.
