105 Brattle Street
About the Event:
Please join JSB for a private tour of the Longfellow House-Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site. This house was not only headquarters for General George Washington during the Siege of Boston, but also the home of famous American poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
His son, Charles Appleton Longfellow, was an avid fan of Japanese culture and we will be primarily looking at his private collection of artifacts from the end of Japan's isolation period. This includes a viewing of their Japanese room and their current exhibit "Thoroughly Japanese."
These are programs for members and spaces are limited, so as a member you are welcome to bring one guest, but a guest cannot attend in your place.
