Henry Wadsworth Longfellow House and Gardens

489 Congress Street Portland, ME Phone:

The Longfellow house and gardens became the property of the Maine Historical Society in 1901, and the society oversaw the re-creation of a Colonial Revival-style garden. The garden was dismantled in 2007 during library restoration, but an ancient lilac was preserved, and became part of a total garden rehabilitation. It now has many plantings from the early-20th-century plans. The garden has a popular children’s gate.
