Classic Authors' American Houses on Google

Mark Twain - 351 Farmington Ave, Hartford, CT.jpg

Maybe you've already seen our Classic Authors' British Houses On Google Maps. Perhaps you've driven round the country to visit them all and now you want a bigger challenge. 

In that case we have just what you need. It's more authors' houses, but really spread out, all over America. 

You can go and stand slightly awkwardly outside the homes of the author of In Cold Blood, the man who made Moby Dick, the twisted soul who birthed Cthulhu and visit the road of the man who wrote On The Road. Or you could just look at them all on Google Maps and have the whole lot covered in about twenty minutes. Totally your call.
