The slide show are some pictures I took when I visited Concord, Massachusetts in 2013. Since we are doing the Crazy Quilt as our 2014 $5 block quilt I thought I would share these photos with you. The quilt is located in the Old Manse. It was built in 1770. From the back window on the right side of the house, you can view the Lexington Bridge where the American Revolution began. The home was built for Ralph Waldo Emerson's grandfather, William Emerson. He was the local circuit minister as was his son and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote his essay "Nature" in this home. When Ralph Waldo Emerson moved into town, Nathaniel Hawthorne moved in with his new bride and lived there for several years. The lovely gardens surrounding the home were planted by Henry David Thoreau as a wedding gift for Nathaniel Hawthorne and his bride. Thoreau was the gardener and yardman for Ralph Waldo Emerson. After Hawthorne moved out a local minister resided in the home. It still belonged to Ralph Waldo Emerson. The quilt came to the house in the late 1880's probably as a gift to the minister residing in the home at that time.
We are so glad you are here visiting us. Stay a while and join the fun.
