Mission Statement

Thurber House's mission is to celebrate the written word for the education and entertainment of the broadest possible audience, and to continue the legacy of Columbus author, humorist and New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber.


Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Thurber House (the home of humorist, author, and New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber) is a non-profit literary center and Thurber museum.

Our programs include the Thurber Prize for American Humor, the only such recognition of humor writing in the country; a month-long residency for writers of children's literature; author readings; writing classes for children and adults and a museum of Thurber memorabilia. Thurber House is a unique national treasure.

Would you recommend Thurber House?

It was very fun working at the Thurber House and with the staff from Thurber as well as BESA. We also received a great tour of the house with a little bit of the house's history which made the event all the better. I look forward to participating in more volunteer events similar to this in the future.
