John Steinbeck House

John Steinbeck House

BerylDrue
This Queen Anne style Victorian was the birthplace and boyhood home of author John Steinbeck. Built in Salinas in 1897, the Steinbeck family moved into the house in 1900. This house is on the National Register of Historic Places and currently operates as a museum to the memory and legacy of the great writer. John Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962 “for his realistic as well as imaginative writings, distinguished by a sympathetic humor and a keen social perception.” Thanks to Jerome Berg from "Google Lit Trips" for photographing the house for me. #Author #California #Landmark #Literary #museum #Queen_Anne #Salinas #Steinbeck #Tower
