The Frost Place is a nonprofit educational center for poetry and the arts based at Robert Frost’s old homestead, which is owned by the town of Franconia, New Hampshire. Besides serving as a sanctuary for lovers of poetry and books, it is also a museum. Unlike typical modern museums, you won’t find at The Frost Place fancy multi-media displays or cafés, but if you come seeking a glimpse and a sense of the kind of place where a young poet could concentrate, and where his four children could range through the woods and orchards and discover the world, The Frost Place can still offer such pleasures. The view from the porch which inspired Frost is stunning and open to the public year round.

The Frost Place was a want - to- go place for as long as I can recall. The drive down old country dirt roads begins to make one wonder if you're going the right way but, eventually the house shows up with the iconic rusty...More

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.
