William Cullen Bryant grew up in this house in the Berkshires before moving to New York City to pursue his career. Bryant's family sold the home in 1835, but he re-purchased it in 1865, remodeling it from a colonial-style building into a Victorian cottage. Many of Bryant's poems were inspired by the beautiful surrounding scenery on the Homestead's estate. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the Homestead is open to the public.
