“see Edna St. Vincent Millay's books & other possessions”
Built in 1892, the year Millay was born, its Victorian glories were removed by Millay to create a simple New England farmhouse. Today the house still holds all of her furniture, books and other possessions, many of which remain where they were on the day she died - October 19, 1950.This three-dimensional "blueprint" aids us in our current efforts to restore her home into a premier Historic House and Garden Museum. Today, visitors to Steepletop can see the gardens, walk the Poetry Trail created by the Friends of the Millay Society (replaced now by the Millay Renascence), visit the gallery that was once Charles Ellis' studio, and purchase Millay memorabilia and books at our gift shop. Visitors can enjoy a film about life at Steepletop when Millay and then her sister, Norma, lived here. They can also see video footage of Society co-founder Roscoe Lee Browne reading Millay's poetry during a festival celebrating Millay. The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society at Steepletop, and The Millay Renascence, are located at 436 East Hill Road in Austerlitz, NY, east of Route 22 and just over the border from West Stockbridge, MA in the Berkshires.
