In 1843, ten-year-old Louisa May Alcott moved to Fruitlands with her family. Twenty-five years later, she wrote her now classic novel, Little Women, drawing from her life experiences, family, and childhood memories at Fruitlands and in Concord. Now, generations of readers have continued to read this story all over the world and many films and performances have been produced, reinterpreting and revisiting Little Women through the ages.
Join us at Fruitlands as we go Behind the Scenes of the newest film adaptation, directed by Greta Gerwig, that filmed here in the fall of 2018 and was released in theaters last Christmas. Step onto the set in the Shaker Gallery which was used as Meg's house in the film and explore the Fruitlands Farmhouse where the Alcott family lived and 10-year-old Louisa May played, learned, wrote, and explored.
