Li Du did not know the significance of the house, but based on what the tourists had said, it seemed to be Thoreau’s former residence.
Thoreau had enjoyed good standing in America. According to Big Quinn, when Boston Massachusetts had its 220th state celebration in 2008, the Boston media held a poll for the public to vote for the 50 most famous people born in the state.
Topping the list was Franklin, a great inventor whose image could be seen on the 100-dollar bill. This was followed by five presidents, including Kennedy, and then there was Thoreau.
Since Steve was staying in Thoreau’s former residence, then he definitely would be from some large, important family. Not just any regular family.

In the end, the doorbell rang a total of three times, but still no one came to the door. He then gave Steve a call three times, but no one answered.
