The Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA is situated on Prospect Hill, the site where Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane founded a short-lived experimental utopian community in 1843. The view from the hill is still beautiful today.
The Fruitlands Museum relates that:
“Fruitlands has been host to some of the most famous people in America. Thoreau walked Prospect Hill and admired its view; Ralph Waldo Emerson, a supporter of Alcott’s, visited here; and Louisa May (then 10) would relate her experiences at Fruitlands in her books Transcendental Wild Oats and Little Women.”

That soil is rich not only in an agricultural, but also in a cultural sense. Have you watched the new, Oscar-nominated version of “Little Women” yet? I haven’t, but hope to soon!
It surely is a rich setting in so many ways. Hoping to see the movie soon!
I hope so, too!
Marvelous pictures. Too good.
Thanks. It’s a beautiful, spiritual place.
Welcome 😊😊 and yes it sure is
