The Homestead Conservatory
Restoration work at the Emily Dickinson Museum is guided by a Master Plan completed in 2006. The plan addresses restoration needs of both the Homestead and The Evergreens as well as the three-acre property they share. Now in a state of unusual preservation and decay, The Evergreens will ultimately be the subject of extensive stabilization and restoration of its period finishes and furnishings. Changes will occur in the Homestead, as well, to return these family homes to their nineteenth century appearances. Eventually the poet's conservatory, in which she tended exotic plants indoors, will be restored (its glass panels still exist) to house her choice blooms.
