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 in conjunction with the Friends of the Morrill Homestead.
