Established in 1976, the Eugene O'Neill National Historic Site is located near the city of Danville, California, approximately 50 miles east of San Francisco. The property is the location of the Tao House, which was the residence of American playwright Eugene O'Neill and his wife, Carlotta between the years of 1937 and 1944. While living at the Tao House, Eugene O'Neill wrote some of his most significant work, including the Iceman Cometh (1939), Hughie (1941), A Touch of the Poet (1952), A Long Day's Journey into Night (1941), and A Moon for the Misbegotten (1943). The Tao House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and the entire property was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1976. This report includes a history, analysis, and evaluation of the site with plans for its management. Appendices include plant lists, implementation strategy, diaries of Carlotta and Eugene O'Neill, inventory of native and non-native vegetation on the site, deer fencing and repellents, preservation tech notes, and O'Neill property deed.
