Blackbird Pond IRL

Thanks to Constance for passing this article along.

The Boston Globe has a piece on literary places in New England to take kids during spring vacation. And one of them is Wethersfield, where the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum occupies the house that served as the inspiration for The Witch of Blackbird Pond.

And the library has a map (PDF warning) of places mentioned in the book, showing their contemporary locations.

How cool! I loved that book. I'll have to reread it sometime.

Some parts of it don't hold up so well, but there's a reason I tend to read it a couple times a year.
