Mark Twain's Hartford home in LEGO.
Mark Twain never played with LEGOs, but the 20th-century toy can now be seen at his 19th-century Hartford home.
The seven-and-a-half foot model is part of a new user-friendly exhibit called “Stories by the Fireside: A Readers’ Room.”
The LEGO Twain home was built in the 1980s as part of the company's collection of iconic American structures, along with the Liberty Bell and Boston’s Old North Church. It traveled around the country for several years, then found a home at LEGO’s corporate headquarters is in Enfield.
The model has been spruced up for its new home in Hartford.
The Mark Twain House & Museum
has restored the home where Twain and his family lived from 1874 to 1891, and where he wrote his most important works, including "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court."
