  • Restored home where Frost lived with his family in the middle years of his life. Just a few rooms on the first floor are open to the public, but they're chock full of interesting info, if you don't al...  more »

  • I LIKE SEEING OLD HOUSES AND THIS ONE IS NICE BUT ONLY A 3 ROOM TOUR. ITS A SELF GUIDED TOUR BUT THE YOUNG MAN AT THE DESK WILL GIVE YOU THE HISTORY OF ROBERT AND THE HOUSE. HE WAS EXCELLENT AND NEW HIS STUFF AND IF HE DIDN'T HE TOOK THE TIME TO LOOK IT UP. THE UPSTAIRS TO THE HOUSE ISN'T OPEN UNTIL THEY ADD AN EXIT IN CASE OF FIRE. IF U TIE THE PARK-MCCULLOUGH HOUSE, THE BENNINGTON BATTLE MONUMENT AND THE HENRY COVERED BRIDGE YOU CAN HAVE A NICE LITTLE DAY TRIP ALL WITH IN 19 MINUTES (7.9 MILES) OF EACH OTHER. BUT CALL OF THE HOURS OF OPERATION FIRST. ALSO MAKE SURE THE ELEVATOR IN THE MONUMENT IS OPEN.
  • The day before I went to the house, I visited his grave. The grave is pretty, and you get to see a whole bunch of other cool headstones, and the first church, which is an historical site. But I left there not "feeling it," though it is still worth the visit. The house, however, had Soul all over it. The place is beautiful, and a wonderful homage. Be watchful, however, as the entrance is easy to pass by. From the road, it is incredibly unassuming. It just looks like a house in Vermont because that's what it is. But it is much more than that, and you will likely feel there.
