Robert Frost – Bennington VermontPosted on: May 5th, 2010 by Patti Eddington
Vermont – Home of Robert Frost
Just up the street from the our Vermont bed and breakfast in North Bennington Village you’ll find Lake Paran, beyond Lake Paran you’ll find the Robert Frost Stone House Museum. The Robert Frost Stone House Museum is located in Shaftsbury Vermont on Route 7A and opened in 2002. Frost lived in the Stone House in South Shaftsbury, Vermont from 1920 to 1929. Here, Frost composed many of the pieces that became part of his first Pulitzer Prize winning volume New Hampshire, published in 1923, including “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”
The exhibits are educational and literary covering Frost’s life and art. They are designed to make you feel as if you met him. The grounds of the property are complete with many images that evoke Frost’s poetry including stone walls, birch trees, fields and woods and even some of Frost’s original apple trees.
You’ll find Robert Frost’s final resting place in the cemetery directly behind the Old First Church in Old Bennington. Old Bennington is a short drive from our bed and breakfast in North Bennington Village, Vermont and can be reached by traversing some Vermont covered bridges and by way of the Bennington Battle Monument. It’s a lovely drive past Park McCullough Estate, over 3 covered bridges, past Bennington Battle Monument, by some beautiful colonial homes and finally into the center of Old Bennington.
A visit to Robert Frost’s home and gravesite are just a few of many things to do on your getaway to our Vermont bed and breakfast inn.
