Over the course of her life, Louisa May Alcott was a teacher, governess, seamstress, abolitionist, feminist, nurse, and adoptive mother. Today, her legacy lives on at Orchard House through tours, writing workshops, educational programs, and community events, as well as through the literary works that continue to inspire fans of all ages.
