A Special Thank You to Our Major Sponsors for their Generous Support:
Our mission is to preserve and promote public enjoyment of the Cedarmere estate, and to preserve and interpret the history and life of William Cullen Bryant. We do this by exploring his legacy as a poet, journalist, publisher, civic activist and influential 19th century leader, while also grappling with complex ideas from historical and modern perspectives.
