Description:

Watercolor by Talitha Botsford. Designed as a replica of a Mississippi steamboat pilot house, this octagonal study stood at Quarry farm on East Hill in Elmira, N. Y. for 78 years before it was moved in 1952 to the Elmira College campus. It was in this study in the summer of 1874 that Mark Twain wrote most of Tom Sawyer, and subsequently parts of many of his best known works, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the Prince and the Pauper, Life on the Mississippi and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
