The Shop at Walden Pond

The Shop at Walden Pond carries products related to Henry D. Thoreau, to Walden Pond, to Concord and its historical authors, to nature and the environment, to writing and creativity, and to related subjects. We have books, apparel, artwork, cards, jewelry, souvenirs, gifts, and even drinks and snacks. Many of the books on our shelves have been signed by the authors. Many of our gift items and photographs come from local artists and residents.

The Shop also has a page at, where all purchases benefit independent bookstores. When you order any of the thousands of books available through our page, the Thoreau Society receives a generous share of the sale price.

Shop staff members are knowledgeable about Henry David Thoreau, his contemporaries, the town of Concord, and the local flora and fauna. Some of them have written books in their areas of expertise. They are happy to converse with visitors and travelers on all sorts of subjects. Every Shop purchase helps to further the mission of the Society.

The Shop is open year-round and operates under seasonal park hours. (Closed on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and during significant snowfall.)

It is currently open daily from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. EST
