Mission Statement

The mission of the Whittier Birthplace is to preserve the historic landscape, house, and other buildings as nearly as may be, in the same condition as when John Greenleaf Whittier lived on the farmstead and to provide public access to the property so that the legacy of Whittier’s literary and abolition works may be remembered.


With the aim to share the legacy of John Greenleaf Whittier's work as an abolitionist and poet, the Whittier Birthplace offers seasonal guided tours of the c.1688 historic Whittier family home and year-round self-guided access to 68 acres of woods and farmland. Programming takes place year-round for all ages including: poetry readings, kite flying day, virtual lecture series, performances in the apple orchard, snowshoe tours, and more.
