The Charles Dickens Museum is located on Doughty Street in London. It is the only museum in the city devoted to the famed author. Dickens moved into this Georgian house in March 1837, shortly after marrying his wife, Catherine. Catherine's sister, Mary, also lived with them, and was Dickens' secret love. She died at age 17 from heart failure and a distraught Dickens mourned her the remainder of his life. Beyond his personal issues at the time was his struggle to be a writer, and it was while living here that he came into his own as an author. His works during this time include The Pickwick Papers (1837), which he completed here, Oliver Twist (1839) and Nicholas Nickleby (1839), which was largely written here. In 1839 the family (his wife gave birth to two children while living here) moved to a new home near Regent's Park. As with several other important homes belonging to Dickens the wrecking ball threatened this house as well. Fortunately it was purchased by the Dickens Fellowship in 1922 and turned into a museum, which it remains to this day. A blue plaque marks the location.
