In 1892, Rudyard Kipling and his new American bride bought 12 acres of land in Dummerston while on their around-the-world honeymoon. By years end they had started construction of their dream home which overlooked the Connecticut River Valley. Christened Naulakha, a Hindi word meaning “jewel beyond price,” this home was designed by Rudyard to resemble a ship with his study in the prow. Here Kipling wrote the Jungle Booksand Captains Courageousand began Kim and the Just So Stories.
