In 1965, in recognition of the Emily Dickinson’s growing stature, the Homestead was purchased by Amherst College and was opened to the public for tours. It also served as a faculty residence for many years. Next door, The Evergreens, occupied by Dickinson family heirs until 1988, remained virtually unchanged for a hundred years. Collaborations between the Homestead and The Evergreens began as the Martha Dickinson Bianchi Trust prepared to open Austin Dickinson’s house to the public in the late 1990s.
Join the Museum’s Executive Director Jane Wald as she traces the evolution of the Emily Dickinson Museum and its sense of vision.
