He lived in seven houses here all east of Van Ness Avenue and North of Market Street. Upon his father's death in 1885, his mother took him and his sister back to Massachusetts. Frost was four times awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry; received forty-three honorary degrees and the Congressional Medal from President Kennedy; was appointed Consultant in Poetry, Library of Congress. He best described himself as one-half farmer, one-half teacher and one-half poet.

"Such was life in the Golden Gate:
Gold dusted all we drank and ate.
And I was one of the children told,
?We all must eat our peck of gold' "
