Twain and Stowe homes featured in New York Times

In an article headlined, "Huck Finn's Hartford Birthplace, With Little Eva Across the Lawn," the New York Times on Friday profiled the homes of Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe, located next-door to each other on Farmington Avenue. "Both houses are treasures," the Times reports. "Stowe's is simple and reflects the accomplishments of a storied career. Clemens's is a shrine to his family life but also contains the room where both Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer emerged from his pen--1,000 miles from their home on the Mississippi."
