Within the Walls of Castle Craigie
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow valued, respected, and drew inspiration from all kinds of people. He turned lessons he learned from people into poems that inspired the world. This two-hour program includes two components: a ranger-led tour of the Longfellow House and a poetry writing workshop in the historic carriage barn or an art-making workshop in the landscape.
During the house exploration, students read poems aloud to discover who influenced Longfellow to write some of his most popular poems. The poetry and art workshops encourage students to express their responses to the Longfellows and their family home in Cambridge.
