Official Site of the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site and Interpretive Center

Official Site of the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site and Interpretive Center: "In 1819, Walt Whitman was born at a farmhouse in West Hills built by his father circa 1810. The Birthplace was restored in 2001 and it is a fine example of native Long Island craftsmanship. The Birthplace is the only NYS Historic Site on Long Island listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1998, the White House Millennium Council named it an "American Treasure." In 2007, the Walt Whitman Trail, which begins at the Birthplace, was designated a National Recreational Trail by the US Dept. of the Interior."

You can see photos of Whitman's home and learn more about his life at this site!
