The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society
I saw from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood.
Over these things I could not see:
These were the things that bounded me...
One of the most popular writers in her time, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950) ranks today as a major figure in 20th-century American literature. The mission of The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society is to preserve her legacy for the future.
The Millay Society is responsible for the placement of the poet’s archives and family papers and for the preservation of Steepletop, the poet’s home in Austerlitz, NY. Our goal is to restore this site, designated a National Historic Landmark, to its original condition and to open it to the public on a regular basis. We welcome the support of the Friends of the Millay Society and others in helping us reach this goal.
