(Concord, MA) :: This fall will be a busy one in Concord at Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House. Orchard House is most noted for being home to the talented Alcott family, and as the place where Louisa May Alcott wrote and set her beloved classic novel, Little Women.
But, the house is also rich in history dating all the way back to the 1600’s. To enhance their mission of sharing this history, the house is embarking on a documentary film project. To fund this project Orchard House will run a Kickstarter funding campaign, which officially launches on September 17th.
Orchard House is one of the oldest, most authentically-preserved historic house museums in America, and brings the Alcott legacy in the fields of literature, art, education, philosophy, and social justice to life every day. Named Best Literary House in New England by Yankee Magazine this June, Orchard House offers highly acclaimed tours, unique living history events, curriculum-based educational programs, and irreplaceable original family furnishings and archives. Annually, more than 50,000 visitors from all walks of life and every corner of the globe experience Orchard House — and discover what it means to be ‘home’.
“We’re so delighted to begin this project” says executive director Jan Turnquist, “there are many stories to be told about Orchard House. While we won’t have the time to tell all of them, the documentary will certainly be a positive tool for us to share many of them and to engage generations of readers – old and new – from around the world.”
The history of the house, its inhabitants, and supporters have not been the subject of a documentary before. Once made, the film will offer highlights from each period of the house’s more than 300 year history and feature interviews with celebrity supporters of the house, such as photographer Annie Leibovitz and Pulitzer Prize winning author John Matteson. Along with executive director Turnquist, the Orchard House Board of Directors and it’s many dedicated staff and volunteers are looking forward to this opportunity for progressive outreach.
