The World of Little Women at the Gibson House

What do Jo March, Louisa May Alcott, and Charlie Gibson have in common? They were all nineteenth-century Massachusetts writers. Learn more about the similarities--and the many differences--in their experiences on this lively tour. In addition to exploring the shared worlds of these real and imagined characters, visitors will hear behind-the-scenes details about the filming of Greta Gerwig's 2019 adaptation of Little Women here at the Gibson House.

 

The tour is one hour and involves walking up and down five flights of stairs.
