And now with our new website, you can learn more about these and future events and speakers. We've added up to the minute news and program updates, more pages about American history and heritage, including profiles of owners and residents of the Jay Estate. Plus detailed progress reports on our restoration efforts with the buildings and landscape.
Like our park, our new website is a work in progress and you will see this resource expand with valuable links and information - one of our newest features is a timeline that will help us give greater definition to the narrative of this precious landmark.
From all of us at the Jay Heritage Center, deepest thanks for what you have helped us accomplish and very best wishes for a Happy, Healthy New Year!
Suzanne Clary, President
