  Mark Twain in Redding
June 18, 2007 starts the count down to 100! Ninety-nine years ago Redding, CT became the home
of Mark Twain. He was so impressed with the Redding house that he stated: "I do so delight in this home that the thought of ever going back to that crude & tasteless NY barn, even to stay overnight, revolts me." In return, Redding, Connecticut, has kept his legacy alive & well via the Mark Twain Library.
