In 1936 American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow arrived in Cambridge. He first came to this house as a boarder; later when he remarried in 1843, his father-in-law bought the house and gave it to the couple as a wedding present. Longfellow lived here for 45 years and taught at nearby Harvard University. The house is doubly noteworthy as General George Washington's headquarters during the siege of Boston in 1775-76. Now a National Historic Site, the house is maintained by the U.S. Park Service. Check website for operating hours.
