About the Robert Frost Farm Papers
In 1965, the State of New Hampshire purchased the farmhouse in Derry New Hampshire
where Robert Frost and family lived from 1900 to 1909. In 1969, two adjacent
properties were purchased that served to protect the homestead’s beauty. With the
help of Robert Frost’s eldest daughter, Lesley Frost Ballantine and a group of early
trustees and state officials, the homestead was restored to the condition it was in
during the Frost ear began. The property was opened for public visitation in 1975.
Currently under the direction and care of the State of New Hampshire, Division of
Parks and Recreation, The Robert Frost Farm is a New Hampshire Historic Site, and
listed on the National Registry for historic landmarks of national significance.
