Wadsworth-Longfellow HouseSet up as a house museum over a hundred years ago, the family home of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow offers an engaging picture of how a well-to-do, cultured New England family of the 18th and 19th century lived. The 1786 structure was the first private home built completely of brick in Portland and once boasted a barn, an extensive garden with fruit trees and, from the second story, a view all the way to the White Mountains. Tours of the house are operated by the Maine Historical Society.
