(44.912271,-93.207374warning.png"44.912271.-93.207374" is not a number. )

This house is a 2/3 scale replica of the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow house in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was built for Robert F. "Fish" Jones, who operated a zoo in this location called Longfellow Gardens.



Robert F. Jones died in 1930. The Minneapolis Park Board acquired the house in 1934. The house served as a public library branch from the mid-1930's until 1968. It was moved in the mid-1990's as part of the widening of Highway 55. Now restored, it serves as an interpretive and information center for the Minneapolis Park System.
