This house is where the philosopher lived for almost 50 years (1835–82). Emerson was the paterfamilias of literary Concord, one of the great literary figures of his age and the founding thinker of the Transcendentalist movement. The house often hosted his renowned circle of friends and still contains many original furnishings.
