Locust Grove is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational organization (incorporated in New York State as the Young-Morse Historic Site), dedicated to preserving the historic buildings at the Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie New York and the Locust Lawn Farm in Gardiner New York.

Operations are entirely supported by admission fees and donations (we do not receive operating support from the State or Federal government).

You can help keep our gardens beautiful, our buildings painted, and our hiking trails open free to the public with a tax-deductible donation.

Looking for interesting ideas for a targeted donation?

$50 – Keeps our lights on for a day

$100 – Helps replace worn garden tools

$500 – Replants one of the historic trees on the Estate grounds

$1,500 – Sponsors a new bench on our five miles of hiking trails
