The Frost Place Museum and Art Center, New Hampshire

While visiting New Hampshire, I stopped at The Frost Place, a museum and arts center located in a Franconia farmhouse.

Beloved poet Robert Frost and his wife, Elinor, lived here from 1915 until 1920 and summered here until 1938. I saw first editions of his work and fascinating memorabilia he'd collected before his death in 1963. To follow in Frost's footsteps, you can walk a half-mile trail out back, with his poems mounted on plaques affixed to trees.

Franconia is located on State Highway 116 in northern New Hampshire, just west of I-93 (take Exit 38) and 7 miles south of Littleton.

From Memorial Day through Columbus Day, the Frost Place is open from 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays until the end of June, and then daily, except for Tuesdays, the rest of the season. Admission is $3 for adults, and $1.25 for children ages 6-12.

For more details call 1-603-823-5510.
