Mission Statement

The Society's mission is to illuminate the life and writings of Edna St. Vincent Millay and to preserve and interpret the character of Steepletop, her home and gardens, places where nature inspires the creative spirit.

Description

The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society preserves the Pulitzer Prize winning poet's legacy and her large body of work. The Society oversees the restoration and preservation of Millay's home, Steepletop, a peaceful place where Millay could write and a social gathering spot that her friends-writers, musicians, and others-could enjoy. Today, the 250 acre property includes Millay's beloved house, gardens and grounds including Millay's writing cabin where she wrote some of her most beautiful nature poems, an outdoor bar next to the swimming pool (where Millay and her guests swam au naturel), and a poetry trail which winds through the woods to Millay’s final resting place. The historic site is accessible to the public through tours, educational programs and events.
