Vivekananda House

In 1900 Swami Vivekananda stayed for six weeks in this house. Built before 1877, the two-story house is a good example of Victorian architecture with its gabled roof and distinctive sunburst designs.

Inside, the house has been restored to its original decor wherever possible. The bedroom where Vivekananda slept is now a sanctuary for meditation. The table at which he dined is still downstairs near the fireplace. Devotees can walk through the parlor where he spoke, the kitchen where he cooked, and stroll in the garden where he often played with the children. Each tangible reminder of the life of the Swami recalls the great principles for which he stood.
