A National Historic Landmark Since 2012

Dedicated to preserving the historic home of Bill and Lois Wilson, co-founders respectively of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon Family Groups, and to commemorating their achievements in the field of recovery from alcoholism. 

The Foundation, created by Lois Wilson in 1979, maintains the home, its contents and archives and offers guided tours and educational programming.

"I felt right at home when I visited Stepping Stones.  I can tell that Bill and Lois wanted us to visit.  If the fellowship is an extension of my family then Stepping Stones is home." - visitor Arthur B.

"It's as if a bell jar were put over the house...it's in the same condition as Bill and Lois left it.  I learned so much from the tour guides and the other visitors about the legacy of the Wilsons that I can't wait to come back and learn more." - visitor Helen K.

Stepping Stones is located about an hour north of Manhattan, NYC, by car or train to the Town of Bedford, Westchester County, New York.
