When Mark Twain was building his 19-room mansion in 1873, the Hartford Daily Times wrote, “The novelty displayed in the architecture of the building, the oddity of its internal arrangement and the fame of its owner will all conspire to make it a house of note for a long time to come.” Years after Twain was forced to leave Hartford because of financial problems, he wrote about the house, “We never came home from an absence that its face did not light up & speak out its eloquent welcome — & we could not enter it unmoved.”
