This is one of the oldest remaining houses in the city. It's now run by the Maine Historical Society, located next door. I took the tour as part of the group I was with. It will really be of most interest to Longfellow fans (I'm not one) or maybe historic house buffs (I am only slightly). If you are neither you are not likely to really enjoy it. But that said I must give credit to the guides (volunteers) who really are passionate about the topic. If you do fit either category than you certainly should take the hour plus and see it.
