Then we came upon this beautiful, old estate. Anjali and I poked around and found a pamphlet and we were shocked to learn that this home belonged to Henry Longfellow and his family. And George Washington lived there when he was a general in the Revolutionary War! We balked at the fact that we didn't know about this historic landmark in our own backyard.
I guess it just goes to show that when you live in the birthplace of America you never know what you'll find.
