Wadsworth-Longfellow House and Store, 1882

Home: The Wadsworth-Longfellow House and Portland

When Peleg Wadsworth built his house in 1785, what is now Congress Street in Portland was on the rural outskirts of the community known as Falmouth. The house passed on to other family members and Portland changed around what remained a family home until 1901, when it became a historic house museum.
