George Washington Really Did Sleep at Longfellow National Historic Site





If you can prove that "George Washington Slept Here," your house is
Historic with a capital "H". Washington really did sleep at the Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House at 105 Brattle Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The house is the focal attraction of Longfellow National Historic Site, which celebrates its 36th anniversary October 9.

Nearly everyone has heard of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882). Sure, you know him. He's the literary genius who wrote Paul Revere's Ride (1861), the epic Song of Hiawatha (1855), and Evangeline (1847), to name a few.
