Visiting the Longfellow House is a very pleasant way to spend an hour away from the bustle of Harvard Square. The grounds are attractive and well kept and the garden area in the back was a very nice place to visit on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon.
The house itself is a gem. It is hard to believe that it was constructed in 1759 and lived in until the 1970's. There are so many original artifacts to admire and the information passed along during the tour was very helpful in understanding all that we were looking at.
This free tour is something not to be missed when you are in the Cambridge/Harvard Square area.
