Dear Friends,

Over a hundred years ago, Edith Wharton saw the potential in a parcel of land in western Massachusetts and created The Mount, her beloved country retreat. Today, The Mount aspires to be a national monument to Wharton’s legacy and a vibrant center for culture. But, we need your help to reach our goals.

Your gift to our year-end appeal will enable us to expand our literary programming, build our educational offerings, and host more theater, sculpture, and music, all while maintaining the house and gardens in the top-notch condition they deserve.

Together, we can widen The Mount’s reach and deepen its cultural impact. In the past two years, our attendance has grown by more than 15% to over 40,000 visitors annually. With your support, we will continue to honor Edith Wharton with a diverse array of programs and careful stewardship of the beautiful estate she created.

With thanks and best wishes for the holiday season,

Susan Wissler

Executive Director
