Quarry Farm was the summer home of Mark Twain in Elmira and the site where he wrote some of his best works. The home is now preserved by Elmira College's Center for Mark Twain Studies and is the site of research and scholarship related to Twain. The house is in wonderful condition and is maintained by a fulltime, on-site maintenance staff. Twain's contribution to literature, American culture, and thought is significant, and Quarry Farm is where he did much of his work.
