Longfellow Birthday Celebration

Mount Auburn Cemetery

Join us as we celebrate Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 207th birthday!

This year’s program will explore the relationship between Longfellow and his friend and fellow writer, Nathaniel Hawthorne, who died 150 years ago. We’ll hear from a ranger at Minute Man National Historical Park about their renovation of Hawthorne’s home, The Wayside.  Also, Ranger Rob Velella will do a dramatic reading from his “Mrs. Longfellow and Mrs. Hawthorne” program.

Following the talk in Story Chapel we’ll enjoy birthday cake and then walk to the Longfellow Lot on nearby Indian Ridge Path for a brief wreath-laying ceremony.

This event is co-sponsored with the Longfellow House – Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site and the Friends of Mount Auburn.

Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
