Well-versed in seven different languages, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a man of many words. During the 1800s, the poet traipsed around Europe, translated the work of Dante, published extensively, and taught at Harvard. His childhood home in downtown Portland is Maine’s first house museum open to the public. From May through October, you can tour the home, see the summer dining room where he penned works like “The Rainy Day,” and walk through the family garden.
