There’s No Attraction In The World Quite Like This One In Massachusetts

If you’ve ever perused a school library in New England, you’re likely to have come across the peculiar work of Edward Gorey. The darkly whimsical and often grim illustrations of this children’s author are unmistakable, and his home is unlike anywhere you’ve ever been.

Even if you have no clue who Edward Gorey is, this place is worth visiting once (or thrice) if you find yourself on Cape Cod. There’s really nowhere else like it.

The Edward Gorey House is located at 8 Strawberry Lane, off Route 6A on the Yarmouthport Common. For another interesting attraction in Massachusetts, check out this charming gingerbread village.
