GOSHEN — Hathaway Road is straight and dirt, passing homesteads nestled up against the Green Mountain National Forest in Goshen. A beautiful meadow opens up, Mount Horrid above. The road continues and the forest closes back in around it and there it is on the left, the Ruth Stone House.
Prior to her death on Nov. 19, 2011, at the age of 96, it was not The Ruth Stone House, refuge of the former Vermont Poet Laureate; it was simply Ruth Stone’s house. And more than that, it was Stone’s home, her architectural soul, her muse.
