The Edna St. Vincent Millay Society is opening its grounds for the first time in three years for a Saturday afternoon concert to benefit this historic site. The grounds will open at 10 am for guests to wander through Millay’s gardens and fields and explore the Poetry Trail that leads to the Millay family gravesites. Guests are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds. Tours of Millay’s home, which were available for an additonal cost, are now sold out.

A wine reception will follow the concert.
