Longfellow’s Wayside Inn is a nationally recognized Massachusetts Historic Landmark, licensed as an Inn and tavern in 1716 and continues today to provide hospitality services along the former Boston Post Road.

A 501(c)3 not-for-profit 120-acre historic site on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wayside Inn offers rich educational public programming, with trained interpreters detailing a variety of colonial customs at several historic building locations. The village campus was originally conceived by former property owner Henry Ford, and is generally recognized as the first living-history museum in the United States. The Wayside Inn remains dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of its open campus, as well as the interpretation and operation of the old Howe Tavern; represented today by the multi-room facility known as the Wayside Inn.
In order to ensure the longevity of this landmark property we need your help. Please consider a sponsorship at any level, or attend the opening night reception to preview some of the most extraordinary antiques on the market while enjoying fine food and drink in a grand canopy tent housing 44 top-notch dealers.
