Thurber House

Thurber House

Thurber House is a living history museum in which visitors are invited to sit on the chairs, play a tune on the downstairs piano, and touch the typewriter that was Thurber's while he was at the New Yorker. Thurber House is furnished in the style of the 1913-1917 period that Thurber lived in the home with his parents, two brothers, and dogs. The first two floors are open daily for tours.

We hope you enjoy our work.
