The "Home of Little Women," Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts has for over 100 years offered educational programs, guided tours, and other year-round events dedicated to the memory of the Alcott family and its accomplishments.

Louisa May Alcott: A Group for Fans, Readers, and Scholars is a Facebook group "open to all who love, read, and study Louisa May Alcott," and it is administrated by Susan Hoyle Bailey and Kristina West. Susan's website and blog, Louisa May Alcott Is My Passion, is full of fascinating Alcott-related information. 

For fans and readers of Little Women, Greg Eiselein and Anne Phillips hosted a blog in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Little Women, and Alison Gibson's Louisa May Alcott course blog on Reading Little Women is another rich and useful resource.

Online and digital editions of published and unpublished writings by Louisa, Bronson, Abigail, Anna, and May may be found at The Alcott Archive at Kansas State University
