The Lobster Pot in Redding is part of the original
75 acre property Mark Twain purchased in March
1906. This is where Isabel Lyon lived as she tended
to the construction and interior decoration of
Stormfield prior to Twain's arrival in 1908.
The original Saltbox was lost to fire in 1953
but the foundation, patios, gardens and stonework
still remain. The gardens, which Susan Durkee
faithfully tend to, are a colorful focal point
from early spring to late fall.
