Welcome to Longfellow House-Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site
Our Georgian mansion was primarily constructed in 1759, with a major addition added in 1791. It has had many famous and important residents since, including George Washington in 1775-1776 and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from 1837 to his death in 1882. Over the years, a huge number of equally well-known visitors passed through its doors...and now it is your turn!
