Emily Dickinson Museum Landscape Renovation:Nineteenth Century Village Landscape Features Unite Historic Homes

Amherst, MA celebrates its 250th anniversary of founding in 2009 and the Emily Dickinson Garden Landscape is rennovated.

Reconstructed mid-19th century landscape features unite Poet Emily Dickinson's home The Homestead and her brother Austin's adjacent home The Evergreens in Amherst, MA.

The Evergreens - Austin Dickinson's home when the landscaping was in its prime - ca. 1870s.

The Homestead in 2004. The fence has long been removed and the original hemlock hedge has lost not only its shape but functon as well.

The Evergreens, also a 2004 view, showing overgrown hemlocks.
