Feature Friday: 10 American Authors' Homes Worth Visiting

This post gave me some serious wanderlust.  I so badly want to visit so many of these homes.  Especially Edith Wharton, Mark Twain, and Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Too bad none of them are anywhere close to where I live!  
Click over to read the full article, including more information, history and highlights of each author's home.

  1. These look very cool. Another place that would fit nicely in the tour is the Gene Stratton Porter house. She wrote Girl of the Limberlost, Freckles and other wonderfully sweet novels. I'm glad Kelli pointed me in your direction!
