Junior Ranger

Check out our new Junior Ranger book, debuting October 2020! This booklet is designed to be completed in conjuction with a house tour, but can also be completed at home when the site is closed using some creativity and our website. Learn about Henry Longfellow's family and poetry, George Washington, the history of slavery at the house, historic preservation, the gardens, and more. Download your booklet here (PDF 6.16 MB).

The Road to Revolution

If the site is not open, or if you'd like to stretch your legs a bit, we offer a walking tour Junior Ranger booklet for 10-16 year-olds that will take you on a short exploration of the house and its surrounding neighborhood. See what old Cambridge was like in the days leading up to the American Revolution! You can pick up a copy at the Visitor Center or download and print your own booklet (PDF).
