Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site preserves the home, gardens, and studios of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America’s foremost sculptors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This was his summer residence from 1885 to 1897, his permanent home from 1900 until his death in 1907. He is described as being the sculptor of his generation “who most embodied the ideals of the “American Renaissance”. He is best known for his public sculptures of US Civil War heroes and US coins that he designed.

    No that’s a house I could live in! And those are sculptures I wish I could sculpt … but being no sculptress I’ll just have to look at your lovely pictures instead!

    I was just talking to my wife about Saint-Gaudens this weekend. However, I had him confused with Daniel Chester French. So when I suggested we visit his house, she thought I meant that I wanted to go on a day trip to Cornish when I meant North Adams.
