Come play at the Mark Twain House!

...AND meet Mr. Twain himself! In Lego form that is. If you've visited The Mark Twain House & Museum since April you may have seen a 7 1/2 foot Twain House made of Lego, and even a little tiny Mark Twain standing on the porch. Now, starting on July 30th you can meet a life size Twain!

July 30th, 4-7pm, we'll be hosting an ice cream social to welcome our brand new ice box to the house.

*Enjoy some free ice cream, graciously donated by UConn Dairy Bar, and we'll be providing all the delicious toppings to go along with it.
soda donated by Avery's Beverages, made right next door in New Britain, CT!
musical performances by Bandstand Barbershop Quartet and EQuilibrium Dance Theatre. *Weather permitting there will be games on the lawn; crochet and hoops!
*And of course we'll be doing tours of the servants' wing of the house to welcome the new ice box for $5. (See previous article for more information and pictures on the ice box).
*The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center will also be involved, leaving their museum and house open for tours and doing Plein Air painting.

So be sure to stop by and see us, and say hello to Sam!
When: July 30th from 4-7pm
Where: 351 Farmington Avenue, Hartford
How much: FREE!
