Thurber House was the home to James Thurber and his family when he attended Ohio State University (from 1913-1917), and today it serves as a non-profit literary center and Thurber museum. The museum encourages interaction, and visitors are invited to sit on the chairs, play a chord on the piano, and experience the museum as if they were the Thurber's guests. Programs of the Thurber House include the Thurber Prize for Humor, a month-long residency for writers of children's literature, author readings, writing classes for children and adults, and a museum of Thurber memorabilia.
