  • It was a fascinating experience. The tour guide did a phenomenal job explaining the historic importance Longfellow's house played in the early history of our nation. It was an exhilarating experience to be in a place where the great thinkers and founders of our nation gathered to plan the birth of our great country. After visiting this historic wonder, I felt even prouder to be an American!
  • Everything is original to the Longfellow's. Great 1 hr tour that takes you through the whole house.
  • Very worthwhile attraction... Geo Washington early campaign HQ also Longfellow's house. Tour heavy on the history... skimmed the important artwork on the walls.
  • Good place. Normally people overlook it. It has rich history. The lawn is well maintained. Looks like any other home in the area. History sets it apart.
  • Awesome piece of American literary History. Easy to find and visit anytime. Great preservation of an early American Georgian mansion.
