For my history class, we had to choose a public history site connected to the transcendentalist movement to visit and report on; my friend Laura and I chose Fruitlands, the site of the short-lived (eight-month) utopian experiment undertaken by Bronson Alcott, his long-suffering wife and children, and a British friend Charles Lane. Below are the pictures I took on the museum grounds and at the apple orchard we stopped at on the way home. (The third individual evident in the pictures is Laura’s roommate Ashley).

Fruitlands is a beautiful place. You might want to visit sooner than later as the Museum maybe in trouble. >>See http://besthire.wordpress.com/2008/10/06/top-notch-embezzlement/>for the story.>>Carl Slicer, Vernon, Conn.
