Longfellow House: “Past & Present Here Unite” with the Bacon Free Library

March 8, 2023@12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Longfellow House-Washington’s HQ National Historic Site Presents “Past & Present Here Unite”

In collaboration with the Bacon Free Library and the Tewksbury Public Library

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Webinar via email.**

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. This program will be led by Longfellow House Public Programs Manager Emily Levine.

NOTE: This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 24 hours of the program.

This program will be held over Zoom. Please register HERE to receive the Zoom link.
