Millay House Rockland has launched a GoFundMe campaign to finish renovations of the double house, located at 198–200 Broadway, where Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay was born. To renovate rooms on both sides will cost $160,000. Millay House Rockland has received $56,000 in grants, with an additional $20,000 promised after $100,000 has been raised. With the help of foundations and individuals, Rockland Historical Society was able to purchase the literary landmark in 2016 — saving it from demolition — and restore the exterior. The society deeded the building to Millay House Rockland, a nonprofit literary organization created in 2017. Millay House Rockland has replaced the heating and electrical systems and prepared the interiors for the final phase of historically accurate restoration. The intention is to rent one side of the house to provide income for literary activities on the other, such as a writer-in-residence program and workshops in cooperation with other Maine literary organizations. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in March. To contribute to the campaign, visit
