Wot, you mean the Nobel prize winning author’s grandmother’s house? OK.
There is, she said, a legitimate connection between Steinbeck and the house, and he likely visited his grandmother there in the summertime as a child, and noted that Elizabeth Hamilton appears as a character in Steinbeck’s novel “East of Eden.”
It’s even possible Steinbeck did some writing there, Trosow said, but that hasn’t been documented.
Steinbeck lived in a Pacific Grove house nearby at 147 11th St. that was built by his father, she said, moving there with his first wife, Carol Brown.
