"The National Park Service is rightfully strict about which places are honored with the title of National Historic Landmark. Their criteria for National Historic Landmark status require that a site be a nationally significant historic place that possesses exceptional value in illustrating the heritage of the United States. I'm proud to be standing at Yaddo today, the site where so many of our nation's greatest creative giants put their minds to work."
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillbrand
