  • I didn't even realize this was in my backyard! Amazing cool piece of history
  • Great free tours of a fabulous old home with a rich, vibrant history. Garden and interior are spectacular.
  • Everything is ordinal to the Longfellow's. Great 1 hr tour that takes you through the whole house.
  • Very nice place. Spirit of history
  • Just a few blocks from Harvard, this was our favorite sight while visiting Boston. First, General Washington's headquarters in 1775, then later the family home of one of America's favorite poets. This house is packed with history and original family furnishings, left largely the way it was when Longfellow was alive. The tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and had so many wonderful stories to share. And it's free! If you love the poems you will love this tour!
