Ancient Elms Still Border Road by Old Longfellow Homestead / Maine Historical Society

Judge Longfellow built the home and estate that would become known as the Longfellow Elms. This estate would consist of the 200 acres of land purchased by Stephen Longfellow II on which the judge would build his farmhouse with adjacent barns and outhouses. Opposite from the house on the other side of the road was a blacksmith's shop. Indian Camp Brook was a short distance from the main house, and at the turn of the road, was the Longfellow School.
