A permanent home and museum for poets and poetry


Covid-19 and The Museum and Henry Holt Barn at The Frost Place

Dear Visitors,

We hope to open The Frost Place Museum at the end of the summer 2021. However, we are ever mindful of your safety, and we will follow the direction of our medical and civic authorities regarding the opening of the house, trail, and barn for the summer. We have a fabulous line-up of programs and poets this year, and we can’t wait to bring poetry back to the ridge and to celebrate another summer season with you.

Please know that we look forward to seeing you when it is safe to do so. Until then, please follow our news and other interesting items on our blog, our Facebook page, and on Instagram.

Thank you so much.

    Most of us love to make music, but not all of us feel we are really all that good at it. Well, who cares, really? Grab a kazoo, an ocarina, thump an empty oatmeal container– whatever keeps a beat and puts some joy into the air, let’s all go do it! One of my favorite […]
