Harriet Beecher Stowe House, Brunswick, ca. 1960 / Pejepscot Historical Society

Coincidentally, both Longfellow and Stowe lived at in the same Brunswick home, albeit at different times. Upon moving to Brunswick in 1850, the Stowes moved into the Titcomb homestead. Longfellow had earlier lived in the same home while a student at Bowdoin with Calvin Stowe. (Hedrick, p. 194) This home, now known as the Stowe House, was run as a hotel and restaurant for many years until its recent purchase by Bowdoin College.

Longfellow later lived in another Brunswick home, which in turn became the residence of Civil War hero Joshua Chamberlain.
