This is my family's house in Amherst Massachusetts. Some information: It was the birthplace & home from 1855–1886 of 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The Homestead began 1813 as a fashionable Federal style house, & was probably the first brick house in Amherst. It was originally painted red to mask the color & texture variations of bricks & mortar. Subsequent changes to the house in the 1830s & 1840s introduced Greek revival architectural features

Emily Dickinson (1830 -1886) I NEVER saw a moor, I never saw the sea; Yet know I how the heather looks, And what a wave must be. I never spoke with God, 5 Nor visited in heaven; Yet certain am I of the spot As if the chart were given. (Complete Poems Part IV - Time and Eternity, published 1924)
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) Poet Dickinson attended Amherst Academy and spent one year at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. She returned to her home in 1848 and rarely traveled. She probably began writing poetry in the 1860s. Her correspondent, Thomas Higginson, counseled her against publication, but her school mate and lifelong friend Helen Hunt Jackson encouraged Dickinson to allow a few to be published in the 1870s. After her death, 1,775 pieces were found and published.
Emily Dickinson with books in a daguerreotype, circa 1846-1847. In her poetry, Dickinson (1830-1886) reflects her loneliness and the speakers of her poems generally live in a state of want, but her poems are also marked by the intimate recollection of inspirational moments which are decidedly life-giving and suggest the possibility of happiness. “I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.” ― Emily Dickinson
