Biography:

The Justin Morrill Homestead (Strafford, Vermont) is a rare venue—among the nation’s most historically-preserved arrays of original buildings in the carpenter gothic style, set in a bed of Victorian gardens designed in the best tradition of the Romantic Landscape Movement of America. The site is a regional and national treasure and a popular venue for staging engaging programs and events rooted in history, horticulture, art and architecture. The Justin Morrill Homestead is a State-owned Historic Site operated by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, with support from the Friends of the Morrill Homestead.
