Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park is an important historical attraction in the Sugar River Region. The park preserves the home, gardens, and studio of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of the United States’ greatest sculptors. The influential sculptor played a crucial role in constructing a unified American identity and public memory through his sculptures and monuments. The house and its gardens were the centers of the Cornish Art Colony starting in 1895.
This historic estate features landscaped and terraced gardens, two hiking trails, Saint-Gaudens’ original work, and reproductions of his greatest masterpieces. The park is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Memorial Day weekend (May 28) to Oct 31.
