How To Use This App

This app allows you to discover many literary sites across Massachusetts, from the Cape and Islands to the North Shore, from Boston to the Berkshires, and stops in between.

You may begin by viewing the General Map to locate sites near you or by browsing a thematic tour, e.g. African American Writers or Literary Museums. You can use the Trail Sites navigation buttons to see a list of sites for each of these Commonwealth-wide trails.

Or you may decide to try a Local Walking Tour! Our first two walks start from the Massachusetts State House in Boston. We'll continue to add walking tours throughout the Commonwealth.

However you use this app, you will learn that Massachusetts has a rich literary history that still flourishes today.
