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

      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.
