105 Brattle St, Cambridge; (617) 876-4491
You read the poems in school now, see where Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the book! This handsome, enormous yellow house, built in 1759, is where oF Hank lived and wrote from 1837 to 1882. The National Park Service now runs the site, which you can only see on their guided tours.
Hour-long tours take place six times a day. Adults pay a mere $2; anyone under 17 is admitted free. After you admire the house, you can take a stroll around the surrounding park. And Harvard Square is a short ten-minute walk down lovely Brattle Street, where many other period buildings co-exist with modem (tasteful) commercialism. The Longfellow house is open to the public from May through October only. Hours are from 10 a m. to 4:30 P.M. Wednesdays through Sundays.
