Digital Collections @ St. Lawrence University


We are actively seeking materials to add to the Back to the Land Research Collection. Our intention is to continue adding materials as they become available and we are especially interested in locating items from communes or homesteads that are not currently represented.

If you have any photographs, letters, diaries, documents or ephemera relating to the homesteading or commune experience in the St. Lawrence River Valley of New York, we would love to hear from you.

Our top priority to gather materials that we can digitize and then contribute the print version to the St. Lawrence University's Special Collections and the Vance University Archives.

Our overall goal is to document the history of this movement and to make the accessible to current and future generations.
