Lyman Estate featured in “Little Women” clip

Nov 5, 2019

Historic New England’s Lyman Estate in Waltham, Massachusetts, is the backdrop for a newly released scene from the upcoming film adaptation of Little Women. In the clip, Jo (Saoirse Ronan) and Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) dance on the veranda while hiding Jo’s burned dress from the other guests at a formal party.

The Lyman Estate is among a number of Massachusetts locations for the latest version of the Louisa May Alcott classic. Adapted and directed by Greta Gerwig, Little Women opens in theaters on December 25.

The Lyman Estate is open for tours on the third Saturday of each month and is a popular venue for weddings and other private events. It is also the home of some of the nation’s oldest greenhouses, which are open year round.
