Longfellow Elms in Gorham, 1903 / Maine Historical Society

The estate was named the Longfellow Elms for the rows of trees Judge Longfellow had planted in 1803 offering his hired men nine pence (121/2 cents) apiece for each tree they would set outside their regular working hours. Hundreds of trees were planted and formed an archway over the road by the interlacing of their branches.
