Established in 1949, Walt Whitman Birthplace Association (WWBA) is Walt Whitman’s voice today, celebrating the poet’s vision of democracy, diversity, and creativity. Today, the site is operated by the WWBA in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP). Our programs and exhibits educate the public on Whitman’s life and times, explore his contribution to our nation’s rich cultural heritage, and inspire young poets and writers.
