Longfellow Mountains facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The Longfellow Mountains are a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains System, located within the North Maine Woods region of northwestern Maine. They extend across the state from northern New Hampshire northeastward to the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec.

In 1959, the Maine Legislature voted to give the various mountains and ranges in northwest Maine the collective name of the Longfellow Mountains, in honor of the Maine-born poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882).

This and most of Maine's mountain ranges and mountain peaks are part of the Appalachian Mountains System.
