While Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, is laid to rest in Elmira, New York, many of his Hartford companions and cohorts are interred at Cedar Hill Cemetery.
Learn about Twain’s life and his many Nook Farm friends, neighbors, and colleagues during this walking tour led by Steve Courtney. Featured residents include Reverend Joseph Twichell, Charles Dudley Warner, and Isabella Beecher Hooker.
The walk is in collaboration with the Mark Twain House. Now a museum, it was the Twain family’s Hartford home from 1874 to 1891.
Steve Courtney is the author of Joseph Hopkins Twichell: The Life and Times of Mark Twain’s Closest Friend and ‘The Loveliest Home That Ever Was’: The Story of the Mark Twain House in Hartford.
