We strolled through the paved trail behind the museum with periodic stops at markers to read Frost's poetry. A nice walk which takes 20-30 minutes.

Beautiful location and you can sit on the porch that I am sure Mr Frost enjoyed many times. Really special to be able to walk around inside the house too.

The Frost Place does what a memorial should — it keeps the deceased's spirit alive! Robert Frost certainly came to life within us. • We best enjoyed the walking trail, stopping at every post to read the highlighted poem and take pictures. • The house...More
