  • Overview

    Grab a drink, join the conversation, and learn about the history of the Millbrook Commune, Timothy Leary’s “Grounded Space Colony” housed on a 2,500-acre estate in Dutchess County. From its founding in 1963 through its forced closure in 1968, the commune played host to a who’s who of 1960s countercultural icons while becoming a microcosm of the struggle between the established societal ideals of law and order and a new concept of personal and religious freedom introduced through the ingesting of psychedelic substances.
