Be inspired by a visit to Rest Haven, whose history includes an Adult Home Residence for the Blind and a place of retreat and respite for the blind. Helen Keller served as a board trustee and worked to keep Rest Haven’s doors open until her death in 1968. On Mar 23, 2017 Rest Haven was officially designated an historical site of New York. The home is also a substantially intact example of Colonial Revival-style domestic design erected ca 1903. Preservation of Rest Haven has been organized to restore the original Rest Haven Home for the Blind to its original glory days to educate and inspire future generations to come. Open House Sat-Sun Apr 22-23 11am-4pm.
