Mark Twain: Notes

One of the things I’m attempting is to document Twain’s actively in the physical space he occupied in Redding. When Twain walked the streets of New York he sometimes drew a small crowd. When he walked through the land surrounding his home in Redding he was essentially alone. Although he would often walk with Stormfield guests or his ever present biographer and neighbor Albert Bigelow Paine. And as I’ve stated before in these pages, Paine was the reason Twain knew about Redding, built a house in Redding and died in Redding. I also want to bring the story forward to today and speak with the people of Redding, some of whom live on property that was part of Twain’s Stormfield estate.
