Abstract

An article on the Crags, a summer house built by Thomas Bailey Aldrich, the witty and well-known editor of the Atlantic Monthly; and Seawoods, built by his brother-in-law, William Richardson. Both of the homes were designed by William R. Emerson and built in Tenants Harbor between 1893 and 1894. Aldrich entertained Mark Twain and Sarah Orne Jewett at the Crags. The author spent summers at a house down the road and heard, probably inaccurately, from his mother that Jewett had written her famous "The Country of the Pointed Firs" in his bedroom. With a profile of Aldrich.
