Jane Austen's home is on College Street in Winchester, England. It was here the famed novelist spent the last few weeks of her life. She had begun feeling poorly in early 1816, with what is thought to have been Addison's Disease or Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and gradually declined until she became bed ridden by April, 1817. Her brother and sister brought her to Winchester for treatment in May, 1817, where she quickly declined. She died in this house, on the grounds of Winchester College, on July 18, 1817. She is buried in nearby Winchester Cathedral. Her works Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published posthumously in 1818. A plaque marks the location.
