Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site - Connemara
Carl Sandburg, nationally renowned poet, biographer, folksinger and lecturer provided broad and enduring 20th century insight into the circumstances, worth and spirit of the American people. He passionately championed for those who did not have words and power to speak for themselves.A midwesterner most of his life, Sandburg and his family moved to North Carolina, which offered the peace and solitude required for his writing. Having already achieved literary fame before moving in 1945, Sandburg continued to write and lecture, publishing more than one-third of his works during his 22 years at Connemara.In 1968, just one year after Sandburgs' death, the National Park Service became the stewards of the first historic site to honor an American poet.
