Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Ralph Waldo Emerson House Museum in Concord

Emerson House Museum In Concord   What’s a house enthusiast / real estate agent do in her spare time? Visit house museums of course.  I’ve always loved them – the antiques, the literary connections, the “step back in time” sensation that can flicker through your mind. Massachusetts has plenty of house museums and I’m going to highlight one each week.

Emerson House Museum In Concord  

Though the lines are longer at the Old Manse or the Orchard House, the Emerson House in Concord is not to be missed. Take a drive out to Concord – twenty minutes from Cambridge and 150 years back in time.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, noted Transcendentalist, philosopher and author, bought the house for his family in 1835.  Emerson lived here until his death in 1882 and family members lived in the house for many years thereafter. 

The house is owned by Emerson’s descendants and is much the same as it was when the Emerson family lived here.  Unlike many house museums, furnished with period pieces in an attempt to recreate the feel of an earlier time, at the Emerson House you are able to see the house very much as it was when the family lived here and entertained so many whose names we still know well.

Be sure to wander around the expansive yard after your tour.

Ralph Waldo Emerson House museum is open Thursday to Sunday from mid-April through October.

For hours and admission charges check the Emerson House website.

Emerson House Museum is at 28 Concord Turnpike, Concord, Mass. across from the Concord Museum
