Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House
This past weekend my family and I had the pleasure of visiting the Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House in exchange for an unbiased review. My daughter has been very interested in the Alcott’s since reading Little Women over the summer. The Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House
is located in Concord, Massachusetts and tours run daily lasting about 30 minutes. Tours cost $10 for adults and $5 for children 7 and up.
During the Christmas season Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House runs a "A Little Women Christmas at Orchard House" on the weekends. This tour is a living history format. Set in the late 1800’s after the completion of Little Women the tour leads you through the house to meet the Alcott’s. First you meet Louisa who gives you a brief overview of what her life was like then and some insight to what was fact or fiction in Little Women. Louisa then talks about how the Alcott family was always helping those less fortunate and asks the children in the tour to collect a basket full of items; one item from each of the Alcotts they meet. The basket of gifts will then be “given” to a family in need this holiday season. Upstairs you meet Mr. Alcott (Mr. March), May (Amy), and Mrs. Alcott (Marmee). Each person you meet tells you a little bit about what it was like living at the house, references Little Women as well as conferring with the group/kids. There are original pieces of art throughout the house created by May; it is fun to try and find all the owls. When you head back down stairs you meet Margaret (Meg) who with the help of some of the “neighborhood” children puts on a play of a scene in Little Women they also sing Christmas carols that you are encouraged to join in and sing. The tour ends in the kitchen where the children recieve Little Women paper dolls and bookmarks. You exit out through the gift shop. The gift shop was toys representative of the time of Little Women, books, movies, crafts kits, and clothing with quotes from Louisa May Alcott.
I would definitely recommend "A Little Women Christmas at Orchard House" for children 10 and under. For adults, older children and those who are very interested in the history and/or are very familiar with Little Women and Alcott’s writing the regular tour would probably be more informative.
Have you ever been to "A Little Women Christmas at Orchard House" or is there another historical holiday event you enjoy?
Molly, her husband, and their 1, 6 and 8 year split their time between their little piece of the cape in Orleans and Cambridge. She was a kindergarten teacher before her oldest was born then became a SAHM. She loves running, books, supporting literacy, nature walks, arts, craft, knitting and sewing as well as being outside and on the beach!

About Cape Cod Moms
Cape Cod Moms was founded in 2010 as a free resource, a place to network and collaborate for moms and parents on Cape Cod. Our blog is designed to help Cape Cod Moms connect with other moms, parents, and caregivers to empower the community with knowledge and support. Today much of our culture focuses on celebrity perfection, which fosters a desire in women and caregivers to do everything right. This is an impossible achievement for anyone and leaves women feeling overworked as the try to strive for a standard only achieved in the media. Cape Cod Moms is a supportive safe-haven for moms to know they aren't alone in the obstacles they face every day; other moms and caregivers struggle to get it all done too!
The Woods Hole Renaissance Fair, a celebration of crafts, music and community held each year at the Community Hall will be held Saturday, December 1st from 10 am to 3 pm at 68 Water Street, Woods Hole MA.
Over 30 craft vendors crowd Woods Hole Community Hall with one of a kind items including Tessa Morgan's Flying Pig Pottery, Ruth Beakley's hand stitched journals, Rachel Switzer's Cape Cod Shibouri fabrics, Rooster Fricke's hot sauces, Carrie Richter's Peachtree Circle Farm preserves and much more. Neighbors and visitors jostle for hand-made goods which make unique gifts at the holidays.
The hall is filled with free music all through the day provided by local musicians, and "Solstice Singers" who perform holiday revels in renaissance garb.
Next door at the Woods Hole Firehouse, Jennifer Gaines leads a group of home made wreath makers who offer original creations with greenery fresh cut from woods nearby. Woods Hole's Church of the Messiah offers home made soups and breads for lunch, and upstairs there is a Tea Room with hot coffee and sweet treats on offer.
This authentic event has created community for decades and many volunteers lean in to make it happen. It remains a wonderful day to celebrate the neighborhood for those far and wide who love Woods Hole. Benefits from the event support the Woods Hole Community Association, which restores and maintains Community Hall and other community structures in Woods Hole.
