Amazing Sculpture and Incredible Views Oct 03, 2010
Known for such famous public sculptures such as the Shaw (54th Massachusetts) Memorial in Boston and the Farragut Monument in NYC, Augustus Saint-Gaudens was one of the most renowned artists of the late 19th century. He pioneered the intergration of architecture, landscape design, and monumental sculpture. Together with Stanford White, Saint-Gaudens created art that invited the public to do more than just look and admire.
This site - the only national park in New Hampshire - includes Saint-Gaudens' house and studio with his work displayed both inside and outside. And when the weather cooperates, the well-kept grounds boast an amazing view of Mount Ascutney.
An art tour is offered at 2PM daily. Tours of the house are offered several times a day and are the only way to see the house's interior. You can also view an informative video at the Visitors Center. Cost is $5 per person for anyone over the age of 15 (good for one week) with certain park passes accepted.
