Steepletop is now closed to the public.
The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society at Steepletop is located at 440 East Hill Road in Austerlitz, NY, east of Route 22 and just over the border from West Stockbridge, MA in the Berkshires.
Millay's library is certainly the highlight of any visit to Steepletop. The library contains over 3,000 volumes of books ranging from poetry to the classics to current novels of the period, as well as research books in English, Spanish, French, German and Latin. Many of the books are personally signed by the authors to Millay.
A massive cataloguing process has been continuing over the years wih about half of the collection completed. Many of those titles are now available to browse here.
Even you, Sweet Basil: even you,
Lemon Verbena: must exert yourselves now and somewhat
Against untimely frost; I have hovered you and covered you
and kept going smudges,
Until I am close to worn-out. Now, you
Go about it. I have other things to do.
Writing poetry, for instance. And I, too,
Live in this garden.
--Edna St. Vincent Millay
