1. Wear sneakers. The ground outside is hilly and uneaven and there are tree roots that can be a little dangerous if wearing heeled shoes. 2. Bring your cellphone with your bluetooth. You must turn it off during the inside tour of the home, but during the independent tour of the grounds it will work more conveniently for you than the speakers they give you for listening to the historical information and poems about the grounds. Very interesting and worthwhile tour of the grounds! Don't miss it!

From Our Editors

The Amherst College–owned Emily Dickinson Museum preserves the memory and work of the poet and hyphen master by maintaining the estate where she lived and composed many of her nearly 1,800 poems. The museum includes The Homestead, her birthplace and longtime residence, which stands near The Evergreens, where her brother, Austin, lived with his family. Emily and her siblings were all avid gardeners, cultivating flowers and hedges throughout their 3-acre estate. Emily herself maintained a conservatory for her collection of exotic plants, and she drew endless inspiration from her natural surroundings for her work.

The Emily Dickinson Museum welcomes field trips for groups of students and schedules events throughout the year to celebrate her poetry and role in American literary history. Interactive poetry discussion groups meet at various Amherst locations, keeping Dickinson's style relevant by communicating only in rhyming quatrains.
