Herman Melville is now considered one of America's great writers, Moby Dick being his crowning achievment. However, this wasn;t always the case and a visit to Arrowhead explains his story in interesting detail. The guide's 1 hour narration was thorough and excellent . The house was well-maintained, including original items belonging to the Melville family. The museum, a former barn, had limited displays, was a little haphazard and the space itself not especially warm (mood, not temperature). Some interesting and relevant books and other items on sale. Grounds have some appeal but a rainy day limited this option. Having read Moby Dick earlier this year, this visit greatly enhanced my understanding of the author's life.
