Give the gift of timelessness Your personalized brick, engraved with an inscription of your choice, will become a permanent part of an attractive Poetry Circle located between the Walt Whitman Birthplace and our beautiful Interpretive Center. Your donation will help us provide for the continuing restoration, furnishing, and preservation of one of the most significant historic homes in America. You will receive a certificate, suitable for framing, acknowledging your donation. Each brick may bear the name of an individual, business, couple, family, grandchild, graduate, lines from a favorite poem, or school, class, and year. Each 8″x4″ brick has space for three lines of text, and each 8″x8″ brick space for six.  Each line holds as many as 14 characters, including spaces and punctuation. The top line of each may say “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” as a heading above the text. Honor a family member, friend, or favorite poet! Exact placement of the bricks and benches will be at the discretion of the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association, with first consideration given to a design that complements the appearance of the grounds. Bricks and benches will become the property of the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association.
