Elephant House

Elephant House is the home on Cape Cod that Edward Gorey, author, illustrator, puppeteer and playwright, lived and worked in when he left New York City.

Located at 8 Strawberry Lane, Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts, USA, the home currently serves as a museum of sorts, celebrating the life and work of Edward Gorey among other things.

Gorey had a healthy respect and passion for animals, was an advocate for them, and contributed to animal rights organizations. He loved cats in particular, thus the activities of the House, from art education to interactive exhibits, have a special focus on animal welfare.
