Now preserved and operated under the auspices of the National Park Service, this historic home was the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from 1837 to 1882; Longfellow is known as one of the world’s most eminent men of letters, and made his mark as a poet, scholar and educator, and was seen as playing a central role in the formation of a distinctly American intellectual culture in the Nineteenth Century; the house was also a meeting place for preeminent philosophers, thinkers, and artists of the period, including such luminaries as Nathaniel Hawthorn, Charles Sumner, Julia ward Howe, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Aside from the connection to literary history, this house also has historical connections to Colonial history, in that is was used as the headquarters of George Washington when he was Commander-In–Chief of the Continental Army and planning the Siege of Boston in 1775 and 1776.
