NEW HAVEN, Vt. (AP) Twenty-eight people are accused of attending a birthday party and New Year's celebration that left a farm house where poet Robert Frost once spent his summers in tatters.
They were all charged with trespassing and five of them with unlawful mischief both misdemeanors stemming from the Dec. 28 party at the Homer Noble Farm house, authorities said.
The farm house had broken windows, broken antique furniture and tables burned in a fireplace. Vomit and urine stained the carpeting, and beer cans, cups and drug paraphernalia were left behind.
The damage was estimated at $10,600. Frost, the author of "The Road Not Taken" and "The Gift Outright," summered at the site for more than 20 years before his death in 1963.
