Next to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s home on Brattle Street in Cambridge is the house of one of his three daughters, Edith, who had married Richard Henry Dana III, son of the author, Richard Henry Dana, who was a friend of Longfellow. Built in 1887, it is a Queen Anne house with twin gables on the facade. The house is now home to the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
