Did you know that you can visit the poet’s home (and that of her older brother, Austin)?

Visiting The Homestead and The Evergreens is on my official Bucket List of Literary Residences and/or Birthplaces.

Go here for up-to-date News & Events. Emily Dickinson’s Birthday Celebration and Open House and A Dickensian Christmas with the Dickinsons look extra magical.
