“Within These Walls:" An Introduction to Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters NHS

Sunday, September 20 @3:00 PM

What does a home reveal about its occupants, and about our shared history? Join a ranger for a live virtual conversation about the remarkable history of the Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House. This site 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. It was a 19th century hub of literary life and abolitionism, a site of remarkable women’s history and art history, and reveals what some LBGTQ folks experienced over 100 years ago. What stories will resonate with you? Free, online, and open to all; register here.
