  • The full house tour (on the hour) with ranger, Nicole Mello was spectacular! Nicole is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor, making this the best tour I've been on in the area. The home is filled with original furniture, objects, and art work. There were also art supplies to use in the garden, which is lovely. There is also a first floor, half-hour tour half past each hour. Free, Ranger led tours are the only way to your the home to protect the objects. There is also free parking on the streets nearby making this a great activity for budget minded folks.
  • This place is really charming and filled with history: a former headquarters of General George Washington during the siege of Boston and the home of Longfellow (the house was a wedding gift to Longfellow given by the father of the bride, Nathan Appleton). The tour around the house is very informative and absolutely free. Great little tour, had Anna as our leader and her enthusiasm for the place really shone through, making the tour all the more interesting. Also happened to be the park service anniversary.
