Census, Timeline

Pages from the manuscript United States census, taken every 10 years, show the changing nature of the Longfellow household -- and the changing nature of the neighborhood and city surrounding the house and its inhabitants.

The selected timeline of Portland with population figures also provides insight into the growth and changes in the city over many years.
