1880 - the Old Original

Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow, brother of the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, probably made this photograph in 1885.

The Morton Block and the Preble House stand on either side of the family home that the family called "the Old Original."

At this time, Anne Longfellow Pierce was the only family member living in the house.
