A Restoration in Progress
In 2015, a group of neighbors and friends met to tour a funky old falling down bright blue disaster of a sad house in danger of foreclosure, condemnation, and demolition. They remembered, this is the house where the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay was born and they organized to save this historic place.
As of 2017, the restoration of the exterior is complete. It's not blue anymore. It's not sad anymore. It's not falling down anymore. It's not in danger of being torn down anymore, but there still is a great deal of work to do.
In 2018, Millay House Rockland begins the next chapter in preserving this landmark with the interior restoration. The plumbing, the electrical systems, the plaster, the wood floors all needs attention and we need your help to make that happen. Please consider donating to our building fund.
