Fodor's Review

The prominent 19th-century poet, civic leader, and newspaper editor William Cullen Bryant lived in this house, built in 1787 by Quaker farmer William Kirk, from 1843 until his death in 1878. Bryant purchased the house as a rural retreat where he could work on his poetry and indulge his love of nature. He renovated and enlarged the original farmhouse, and planted exotic trees and flowers on the grounds, transforming the estate into a horticultural showplace.
