Thank you for visiting the Emily Dickinson Museum and for taking this tour of the landscape.
This tour was written by Marta McDowell. Readers were Walter Carroll, Marta McDowell, John Martin, Mary Jo Salter, Jane Wald, and Richard Wilbur. It was recorded at the studios of WFCR, 88.5FM Public Radio for Western New England, in Amherst, Massachusetts.
This project was funded in part by a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, an independent Federal grant-making agency dedicated to creating and sustaining a nation of learners by helping libraries and museums serve their communities. The Museum also acknowledges the generosity of WFCR and its staff.
The Emily Dickinson Museum is dedicated to educating diverse audiences about Emily Dickinson’s life, family, creative work, times, and enduring relevance, and to preserving and interpreting the Homestead and The Evergreens as historical resources for the benefit of scholars and the general public. The Museum is owned by the Trustees of Amherst College. The Museum has a separate Board of Governors and, with only limited support from the College, is expected to fund its operating and capital improvement objectives independently.
