I'd your into history, Jack Frost Farms is a great place to start. Very interesting. You can see how they lived walk the ground and it tells you in certain places during the walk the history of what went on at different years of his life.

We live close to this historic site and always find it enchanting and peaceful. The house and barn tour are very educational, and the grounds are fun to walk and explore.

We were happy to make it to this site before they closed for the day & season. If you are interested in going, check on their hours first. The tour ($5 and well worth it) starts in the barn with a short video narrated by a daughter of Robert Frost & some poetry readings by Robert Frost. Then the tour... More

Very simple "museum". The house where Robert Frost is now alongside a busy road. The barn hosts the "museum" which is really just a spot to watch some videos on RF and look at some family portraits and tools. Inside, a plain, white clapboard house...that shows some of the artifacts of the early 1900s when the family lived there. They... More

There is not a lot here, but it is a great little picture of the early life of a great poet. Our family had a charming visit, after having discussed Robert Frost and his poetry earlier in the day. The house and many things inside are original, giving a nice vignette of the Frost family and life in that period.... More

There is an informative display about Robert Frost and his family in the barn. Everything is free except the house tour. The next time I go I will take that tour. Walk the grounds, down the side of the field, through the woods. There are a number of Robert Frost books for sale. It is simply a wonderful location to... More

An hour or less is all you need. Nice walk on the trails in the woods and the house is interesting to see. If your around and love history, go visit.

This was closed when I visited, but I was still able to walk around the farm, including a tranquil walk in the woods past a babbling brook.. Posting the video was met with many thanks for a moment of solitude...

A little piece of history is wrapped up in this beautiful piece of property. I suggest staying for the guided tour to learn about Robert Frost's life here in NH. It's a fascinating look back at a much simpler time. I recommend bringing lunch and having a picnic on the beautiful property. There is a small trail that one can... More
