A gift from Clemens' sister-in-law, the study once overlooked the city from atop East Hill. A presentation is given in the study. Visitors also may see Cowles Hall's Mark Twain exhibit, which holds expansive photos of Quarry Farm and the Langdon Mansion as well as Twain family memorabilia. Note: Visitors to the Mark Twain exhibit must enter through the Twain study.
Hours: Mon.-Fri. 9:30-4:30, May 1-Labor Day; by appointment, rest of year. The study and exhibit are closed on major holidays and Elmira College holidays.
