Home to 19th century poet, Henry W. Longfellow, and headquarters for General George Washington during the Siege of Boston, July 1775 – April 1776, the Longfellow House bore witness to many significant events. The first use in the United States of anesthesia for childbirth was administered to Fanny Longfellow at the house. Famous literary figures such as Charles Dickens and Nathaniel Hawthorne were visitors, as were politicians, actors, musicians, and others. Hear Berklee artists continuing on this artistic tradition on Sunday afternoons at Longfellow House–Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site. (View Map)
