Maine Historical Society is stirring up the spirits at the old Wadsworth-Longfellow place during a series of tours titled “Longfellow’s Haunted House.” Inspired by Henry’s poem, “Haunted Houses,” the tour (led by longtime guide James Horrigan) provides a close look at the poet’s boyhood home and the “harmless phantoms” still dwelling within. Runs Oct. 23-31, at 6 p.m., departing from the MHS Museum Store (489 Congress St., Portland). Tix: $20. 774-1822. mainehistory.org.
