Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House, 105 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA
I was inspired to highlight 31 buildings in Boston in 31 days after the architecture blog A Daily Dose of Architecture . Not only was I going to highlight 31 buildings, but 31 of Bostonian’s favorite buildings. This is the series.
About the Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House:
The Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House is as important to Cambridge as is the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (who lived in the house). The house is a fine Georgian style mansion with a distant view of the Charles River. I visited the house three summers ago, and one room that I seem to not forget is the one filled with Chinese and Japanese art treasures (maybe it’s because I love Asian art). The house is owned by the National Park Service and is open to the public.
Have you visited the home of an author recently or as a child? If so, which author’s house did you visit?
