Don't miss our annual evening tour of the Longfellow House in the week leading up to Halloween! Based on Longfellow's poem, "Haunted Houses" ("All houses wherein men have lived and died / Are haunted houses") the tour is written and led by seasoned guide James Horrigan. It evokes the various family members that died in the Wadsworth-Longfellow House over its long history. Two tour types will be offered this year; one for families and one for adults.

Family Tour: This 30-minute tour is followed by cookies and cider in the ell of the house. Offered on October 27 and 28 only, at 5pm. Each tour is limited to 15 people. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Advance registration is required.
