Enjoy a virtual lunchtime lecture from the Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site in Cambridge, entitled “Past and Present Here Unite: An Introduction to Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters NHS.” What does a home reveal about its occupants, and about our shared history? The Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House bears witness to the history of slavery in New England and the early free Black community of Cambridge, and George Washington’s development as a leader. In the 19th century, it became the home of famed poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and a hub of literary and artistic life. More recently, the house reveals a rich history of the historic preservation movement. Learn more about this unique public resource, reopening for the season in May 2023. Led by Longfellow House Public Programs Manager Emily Levine.
