ABOUT

Background

Here at James Morris Museum & Aline Brothier Morris Reading Room, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. None of this would be possible without the continued support from The New York Community Trust Fund.

MONTHLY SPOTLIGHT

In honor of No Mow May, we're sharing "The Robin's Song", a ceramic statuette of a child dating back to the late 19th century. Perhaps they are standing out in their backyard like many of our own children, looking at the birds and insects hard at work pollinating all the flowers growing free. What types of animals do you see in your backyard?
