Valley of the Poets Tours invites you to discover the poetic legacy of America’s four powerful poets of the past 350 years.  See where they lived, worked and wrote — places of inspiration, introspection and too often, pain of loss, misunderstanding and even possible threat to life.

Living in times of national and personal upheaval, these tenacious ladies and gentlemen forged ahead, leaving us their legacy of action, belief and words.


Anne Dudley Bradstreet (1612 – 1672) America’s First English-language Poet to be published from the New World

John Greenleaf Whittier (1807 – 1892) A beloved poet and outspoken abolitionist whose birthday was honored with a National Holiday

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896) “So you’re the little lady who started this great big war.” :President Lincoln, meeting Mrs. Stowe

Robert Lee Frost (1874 – 1963) Thought by many to be the best, most beloved of all American poets – four Pulitzer Prize awards


Come harvest your heritage as you visit each poet’s home here in the Valley of the Poets.
