Longfellow House Bulletin
The Longfellow House Bulletin documents the National Park Service's stewardship of the house and the efforts of the Friends of the Longfellow House to support and supplement this work. Every issue contains articles on aspects of the house's collections, research on Longfellow related topics, and a profile of someone involved with the Longfellow House, whether as a "Friend", scholar, staff member, or other interested person. The Bulletin is a collaborative endeavor between the Friends of the Longfellow House and Longfellow House - Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site.
