I will travel with you on your van or bus to the historic Longfellow House in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Before arrival, I will recite many of Longfellow's poems and will dive into his life. Once at the site, we will join a Park Ranger for a 45 minute guided tour of the Longfellow National Historic Site. The site is fascinating not just from a literary, but from a historical context.
The Longfellow House was originally built in 1759. It is rich in history; used by George Washington, and visited by Benjamin Franklin and John Adams in its early years. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the beloved American poet, lived the house from 1837 to 1882, and was a gathering place for many of the area's authors and philosophers.
We will then continue the tour for a relaxing lunch at a fine restaurant in the area before we return.
I will travel with you on your van or bus up to the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, NH, approximately 1 hour drive from Boston. During the drive to farm, I will recite many of his beloved poems and talk about his life and times.
Once there, the Park Ranger will take us on a guided 45 minute tour of this National Historic Landmark. The Robert Frost Farm was home to Robert Frost and his family from 1900-1911.
After the tour we can have a lovely lunch at a quaint Inn. On the drive back, I can continue to recite his poetry and continue to answer questions about Robert Frost's life.
