The Song of Hiawatha

Should you ask me, whence these stories? 
Whence these legends and traditions…

–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1855

The Hiawatha is named for the 1855 epic poem, The Song of Hiawatha, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Longfellow, born in Portland in 1807, was a commanding figure in the 19th century literary world and one of only five Fireside Poets. The poem, one of his most famous, relates the adventures of an Ojibwe warrior named Hiawatha and the tragedy of his love for Minnehaha. 667 Congress Street stands opposite Longfellow Square, home of a public monument to the poet.
