The Robert Frost Stone House Museum, Shaftsbury

This historic house museum preserves and shares the legacy of one of America’s most celebrated poets.

Frost lived at the home in the 1920’s, where he farmed and planted an apple orchard, and wrote some of his best-known poetry, including “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” Exhibits include biographical information, photographs, a room devoted to “Stopping by Woods”, and a poetry trail coming in Spring 2020. Picnic, relax in Adirondack chairs, or stroll the grounds that inspired some of America’s most well-known poems.
