The website for Robert Frost’s Stone House at bennington.edu/robert-frost-stone-house-museum tells you all about it and why it was important, most notably because it is where he wrote his first Pulitzer Prize-winning book and what many people consider to be his most famous poem: Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. The house is located in the small town of Shaftsbury, which has a population of approximately 3,500.
(The photo on this page is not of the Stone House, but an example of what it is like to stop by woods on a snowy evening in Vermont.)
