Derry - The Robert Frost Farm

122 Rockingham Road

The Robert Frost Farm 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. Programs are offered to the public at no charge. This National Historic Landmark is supported by the Division of Parks and Recreation, the Robert Frost Homestead Trustees, and the Friends of the Robert Frost Farm.

Even in the off season with the historic home of Robert Frost closed the grounds and trails offer a wonderful visiting experience. It's truly like being in any of his master works written during his Derry years. At various points on the farm, signs are posted with his poems, all located at points that echo the words. My favorite is as the wood trail separates into two "the road less taken" greets you to read and ponder. The snow was deep and snow shoes made the experience possible. Volunteers worked pruning Frost's Apple trees. A very good way to spend a sunny winter day.

This is the place where Robert Frost stayed the longest, crafted his work, and became the man we know today. The tour guided are fun, and the property is expansive. Many of the shorter poems are posted around various spots on the farm. It is lovely and well maintained. It would be a nice family friendly outing.

Beautifully restored to the original home they lived in for over ten years! Many original pieces of furniture and even some actual items!

This is a beautiful place highly maintained. Great place to take a stroll through the woods where Mr. Frost himself walked and wrote poetry. Thank you NH Historical Society for doing a wonderful job here!🌟
