The website for Robert Frost’s Stone House at 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.)

You can also read more about Robert Frost on the Poetry Foundation‘s Robert Frost page at and by reading our FloridaNew Hampshire, and New Mexico pages.

This is the first stop on our Vermont Author Adventures Trail.
