Emily Dickinson House


Poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was born in this house in Amherst, Massachusetts and lived most of her life there, rarely leaving its beautiful grounds. After Dickinson's death her sister Lavinia discovered hundreds of poems hidden in the house. Thanks to Lavinia, these poems were published, and Dickinson is now regarded as one of the greatest American poets.
