"It is but right that the house should belong to the public… Henry always loved the old home above any spot on earth, visiting here on frequent intervals."
(- Anne Longfellow Pierce from the Lewiston Journal, 1893)

Anne Longfellow Pierce died in 1901. On her death and based on an agreement she developed several years earlier, the Wadsworth-Longfellow house and property transferred to Maine Historical Society.
