  • Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn (1862) | Wayside Inn
    October 1862 visit to the old Howe Tavern by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and his publisher James Fields would have a far reaching impact on the literary and artistic significance of America s oldest hostelry Longfellow made the defunct Sudbury tavern the gathering place for the characters in his 1863 book Tales of a Wayside Inn and because of the poet s immense popularity generations of readers poets and artists would seek out the colonial landmark for decades to come After the death of the last Howe innkeeper in 1861 the homestead operated as a boarding house for itinerate farmers and other temporary guests But Longfellow penned such a vivid portrayal of the Howe tavern and its innkeeper the Landlord of the Tales he captured the public s imagination The day trippers who visited the tumble down structure were only shown a few scantly furnished rooms but that did not slow the near daily rush of tourists The first printing of his Tales sold out in a single day and curious literati flocked to the once great inn and tavern just to catch a glimpse of the poet s muse For over 30 years the old Howe Tavern would subsist as a homestead and boarding house but simultaneously known as the place made famous by Longfellow Years before the Inn s name was actually changed people began referring to the old Howe property as Longfellow s Wayside Inn While local apothecaries and general stores sold souvenirs bearing images of the veritable landmark with its new nickname it wasn t until 1897 that the Inn s cultural and commercial relevance was fully recognized Edward Rivers Lemon was a wealthy antiquarian and wool merchant from Malden Massachusetts His purchase of the Howe property in 1896 was newsworthy as Boston papers announced his intention
