Walt Whitman Birthplace in United States

The Birthplace with lilacs in full bloom.

A gem. En route between New York and Sag Harbor, great admirors of Walt Whitman, we stopped in Huntington on a foggy December morning.

Walt Haven Having been enthralled with Leaves of Grass for 50 years, it was a true delight to visit this museum and home. You will learn much about the poet and his impact on history, as well as his journey as a writer.

Our Local Treasure Walt Whitman grew up in Huntington Station, NY on a large tract of land owned by his family. He was the founder of a local Huntington newspaper, The Long Islander, that is still in print today.

In 1819, Walt Whitman was born at a farmhouse in West Hills built by his father circa 1810. The Birthplace was restored in 2001 and it is a fine example of native Long Island craftsmanship.
