Maudelle Driskell directs The Frost Place, Robert Frost's old homestead in Franconia, N.H. Recently, as she and her staff were cleaning up the house and packing away for winter, they found something odd wedged into a closet under the stairs. It appeared to be the top of a crate with a label scrawled in Frost's hand: "SS St. Paul. November 16th. Please forward with dispatch."


When poet Robert Frost returned to New Hampshire from England in 1915 he moved his family into a small farmhouse in Franconia, NH. Since 1976, when the Town of Franconia purchased the property, The Frost Place has provided a glimpse at the poet's life from a hundred years ago. His old chair sits near his former desk near his old wallpaper.
