Don’t miss our annual evening tour of the Longfellow House in the week leading up to Halloween! Based on Longfellow’s poem, “Haunted Houses” (“All houses wherein men have lived and died / Are haunted houses”) the tour is written and led by seasoned guide James Horrigan. It evokes the various family members that died in the Wadsworth-Longfellow House over its long history. Two tours will be offered this year; one for families and one for adults.
