About the Park

The Robert Frost Farm Historic Site was home to Robert Frost and his family from 1900-1911. Frost, one of the nation's most acclaimed poets whose writings are said to be the epitome of New England, attributed many of his poems to memories from the Derry years. The simple two-story white clapboard farmhouse is typical of New England in the 1880s.

Tours, displays, a trail, and poetry readings are all available at the park. Seasonal Programs are offered to the public from May through October. They are made possible by grants from the N.H. Humanities Council and are sponsored by the Division of Parks and Recreation, the Robert Frost Homestead Trustees, and the Friends of the Robert Frost Farm. 

Tours are limited to 8 guests.  Please reserve your tour ahead of your visit.
