Beautiful homestead on the side of a hill with outstanding views. The home has an interesting history. The guided tour was worth the time. Our tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The house is not completely renovated but still worth the time to visit.

Bryant was not only the most influential American poet in the first half of the 19th century but also the most innovative pioneer in the American short story. The Homestead site is prominent in his poem "The Rivulet" and his first story "A Pennsylvanian Legend." (Along with biographical matter,... More
