Longfellow's Wayside Inn

 

Longfellow's Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts is the setting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn first published in 1863. Located off Route 20 (Old Boston Post Road) in Sudbury, Massachusetts, the inn once known as The Red Horse Tavern has been operating for nearly three centuries. Longfellow's Wayside Inn is the oldest inn in the United States that is still in business.
