OFTEN IN THOUGHT GO UP AND DOWN
THE PLEASANT STREETS OF THAT DEAR OLD TOWN,
AND MY YOUTH COMES BACK TO ME.

From left to right Goodhue has sketched the Daniel Davis house (1794), the Rev. Samuel Deane house (1765), and the First Parish Meeting House(1740), where the young Longfellow attended church. The steeple was placed on the rectangular structure in 1761.
