Although it is only 2 rooms and a small hallway, this museum packs a powerful punch of facts and emotion. The first room is the permanent exhibit which chronicles the poet's life, that of his family and his impact on the world. It is mostly...More

Having grown up in a Midwestern town where Robert Frost often visited, and driving south on 7a from Manchester on our way to Salem, Mass, this was a "must" stop. It was a crisp, late November morning. The Museum itself was closed for the season,...More
