|Off Rte. 93 North follow the signs to Derry, NH and |
Robert Frost's Homestead.
|In the barn, you'll find memorabilia, Frost's poems and photos |
lining the walls. A video is available too. A guide of the house
is another option.

If you recall, Robert Frost recited a poem at the Kennedy Inauguration.
|When heading to the White Mountains...make a quick stop in |
Derry! It's a great little town with a wonderful retro 50's diner called
Maryann's. See below!
