Jay Heritage Center


"Our non-profit, the Jay Heritage Center (JHC) is dedicated to transforming the 23 acre Jay Estate into a vibrant educational campus, hosting innovative programs about American History, Social Justice, Architecture, Environmental Stewardship and Landscape Conservation.

We hope to encourage people of all ages to understand, preserve and protect our shared heritage, natural and man-made – and to inspire the future historians, civic advocates and stewards of our fragile cultural and environmental resources." (jayheritagecenter.org)
