In the quiet suburbs of Amherst, Massachusetts lies the birthplace and residence of America?s foremost 19th century poet, Emily Dickinson, who is famous for her poems unearthed only after her death. Poetry enthusiasts and literary buffs can visit the place where the late poet spent her lifetime.

The Emily Dickinson Museum actually consists of two houses: the Dickinson Homestead, which is the actual house of the poet; and the Evergreens, which was the gift of Emily?s father, Edward Dickinson, to her brother, William Austin Dickinson.

The Museum complex contains various things related to the late great poet. According to the official website, the museum is open for public tours from March through December. The Emily Dickinson Home was declared a National Historic Landmark on October 15, 1966.
