77 JEFFERSON AVENUE
Thurber House was the home of author, humorist, and New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber and his family when Thurber was a student at The Ohio State University. Thurber House opened in 1984 as a non-profit literary center and museum of Thurber materials.
Thurber House is a living museum. Visitors are invited to experience Thurber's life by becoming a guest of the Thurber family. While in the house museum, visitors may sit on the chairs, play a tune on the downstairs piano, see the typewriter that was Thurber's while he was at the New Yorker, and become a part of literary history. (Stories about the time Thurber lived in this house are included in his My Life and Hard Times and The Thurber Carnival.)
