EUGENE O'Neill is the only American playwright to have won the Nobel prize for literature, and the only dramatist to have won four Pulitzer prizes. The museum collection of the Eugene O'Neill National Historic Site represents Eugene O'Neill's life and work during the time he lived at Tao House, 1937-1944. The collection includes personal belongings owned by the O'Neill痴 including clothing, accessories, and books, as well as original photographs and personal correspondence. Many of the furnishings at the site were not owned by the O'Neill痴; however, these pieces were selected or created based on historic images of the house and allow us to demonstrate day-to-day life at Tao House.

In addition to Tao House, there are a number of other features on the site that are preserved from Eugene O'Neill's home. Directly adjacent to the home is the courtyard area, with planted gardens and historic pathways. Outside the courtyard there are historic walking paths, one of which leads to the swimming pool that O'Neill used for his afternoon swims. Historic Black walnut and almond orchards are on site also. Across from the house is the 19th century barn, which is the only structure remaining from the original owners. This barn has been rehabilitated now and serves as a performance venue where, in collaboration with the Eugene O'Neill Foundation, plays are presented at different times of the year. Information about performances can be found on their website at Eugene O'Neill Foundation | Tao House. At the far end of the site is a grave marker for Blemie, the O'Neill family's beloved Dalmatian, for whom he wrote a very touching last will and testament.

Besides the various structures and features of the site, the location above the San Ramon Valley provides a glimpse into the sense of seclusion and serenity that Eugene O'Neill was looking for.
