This is a distinct attraction that attracts a lot of writers and literature lovers to its folds. Jack Kerouac house is a tin-roofed bungalow with a back-porch apartment where Kerouac, the writer, wrote, brooded and hid out in the months after his influential novel ''On the Road'' came out in 1957. It was in this house that Kerouac wrote The Dharma Bums, the famous novel. What makes this attraction a unique one is that it offers residence ship to the aspirational writers every year where they can write in a secluded surrounding. Even though you don’t plan to stay over here, yet you see this house and see how it is enveloped in a literary scene beyond the din of the city life.
- You can just look at this house from outside.

This is an inspiring place to visit if you can ever come for one of the writers-in-residence potluck dinners or farewell readings. There are only two times per season the public can see the house, so you have to time your visit just write. Otherwise it's a private residence the remainder of the time — no pop-in visitors, please! (I was the Spring 2016 writer-in-residence, and we frequently had people who would come up to the door and see our sign and leave. One couple actually sat on the front porch and hung out for about 30 minutes, which was not awkward for me *at all*!)

Very inspiring and charming home. A novel place to visit.
Great historical area to visit!
