This 18th-century, red-brick home is one of three structures containing the famous Portland writer Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s boyhood home, as well as one of the state’s best historical archives: a history campus, if you will. This home was built by Gen. Peleg Wadsworth, grandfather of the poet, and is still furnished in early-19th-century style with some original furniture. Adjacent is the Maine History Gallery, a decent museum inside a former bank.
