Poem of the Day

  • At Midnight by Sara Teasdale

    Now at last I have come to see what life is,
    Nothing is ever ended, everything only begun,
    And the brave victories that seem so splendid
    Are never really won.

    Even love that I built my spirit's house for,
    Comes like a brooding and a baffled guest,
    And music and men's praise and even laughter
    Are not so good as rest.

A very interesting and pleasurable experience. We’ve visited many historic sites and homes and most were quite worthwhile, but the staff at WW were exemplary. Kudos to Executive Director, Cynthia Shor, and docent, Charles, for making us feel welcome. High praise to Brandon for his informative and thorough tour of the house and grounds. Additional thanks to Cameron for his digital help and conversation. Charles was a particularly kind host and very helpful. My wife and I rate this as a “don’t miss” stop when visiting the NYC area.

A nice place to visit if you're a fan of Walt Whitman and historic farm houses. Guided tours, audiovisual show, library, museum shop/bookstore, and picnic area are all included for $6 for adults. Amazing to find this piece of history on the super busy commercial eye sore that is route 110. It's pretty cool to imagine that area as all farm land almost 200 years ago.
