Edward Gorey, a prolific and unique American author, illustrator, playwright, and set and costume designer spent his last years living in one of the oldest houses on the Common. Converted into a house museum, this rambling 1820 house commemorates the extraordinary artist, celebrating and preserving his life and works. Through personal belongings, never before seen photos and original works, the House displays his diverse talents and exudes his distinct personality. The House also honors Gorey’s passion and concern for animals, raising awareness about local and national welfare issues. A docent-guided tour is always available, or you may take a self-guided tour at any time.

The major exhibit for 2008 is Edward Gorey’s Childrens’ Books. Check the website for information on the Annual Goreyfest and Auction. – www.edwardgoreyhouse.org , or 508.362.3909.
