The PROPERTYHistoric Steepletop
The HouseBuilt 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.
Garden & Grounds
During Millay's years at Steepletop the farm encompassed 700 acres including a large group of wonderful gardens designed, planted and maintained by Millay herself.
Beginning in 1927 on the former site of an ancient barn, Millay used the existing stone foundations to create “exterior rooms” entered through garden doors.
