A Story in Every Mile...
The North of Boston region is named after one of the area’s most favorite sons, American poet, Robert Frost. While living in England with his wife and four children, Frost published his second book of poems, entitled North of Boston (1914), which gained international reputation. The collection contains some of Frost’s best-known poems: Mending Wall, The Death of the Hired Man, Home Burial, A Servant to Servants, After Apple-Picking, and The Wood-Pile.
He was considered to be one of the finest of rural New England’s 20th century pastoral poets and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize four times. Born in San Francisco, Robert Frost was raised and educated inLawrence, Massachusetts. Today, the city has a self guided walking tour of sites important to his life and the annual Robert Frost festival in October.
