Built in 1874, this building was the home of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, until 1891. While he and his family lived in this 25-room Victorian mansion, Twain published seven major novels, including Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and The Prince and the Pauper. The home is one of only two Louis Comfort Tiffany–designed domestic interiors open to the public. A contemporary museum on the grounds presents an up-close look at the author and shows an outstanding Ken Burns documentary on his life.

The day at the Museum was excellent, the highlight was actually being able to walk around Mark Twain's home. The museum is redone and very modern.
