Little Women is a classic of children’s literature that provides a glimpse into the home lives of young women during a time of great tumult and change in American history. The March sisters are among the most beloved literary characters of all time, inspired by Louisa May Alcott’s unusual upbringing among transcendentalist philosophers in New England. This exhibit will discuss the life and work of Louisa May Alcott, including the inspiration she found in her own life experiences. Artifacts will include mid-19th century clothing, handicrafts, antique dolls, toys, and children’s books from the LCHM collection.
