Middlebury Robert Frost Film


The Homer Noble Farm in Ripton, VT was Robert Frost’s summer home from 1939 to 1962. Just down the road from Middlebury’s Bread Loaf Mountain campus, it was a short walk for his regular appearances at the Bread Loaf School of English and the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference. Frost spent summers on his property gardening, hiking, tending to his animals, and writing of course. The Middlebury College Special Collections and Archives recently digitized this 16mm film footage (circa 1948) of Frost enjoying his idyllic Vermont summer home. Head to Vimeo to watch it.
