Augustus Saint-Gaudens

Question: I have heard that somewhere in New Hampshire, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ home is open to the public. Can you provide me with any information? I was thinking of visiting there the next time I get to New England. –D. S.

Answer: The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site is located at Cornish, New Hampshire, just a few miles south of Lebanon, New Hampshire and White River Junction, Vermont. It is just across the Connecticut River from Windsor, Vermont. The National Parks Service administers the home and grounds, and it is indeed a very pleasant stop, especially during the summer months.

The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site webpage at http://www.nps.gov/saga/index.htm offers this by way of introduction:

“Discover the home, studios and gardens of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America’s greatest sculptors. See over 100 of his artworks in the galleries and on the grounds, from heroic public monuments to expressive portrait reliefs, and the gold coins which changed the look of American coinage. Enjoy summer concerts, explore nature trails, or indulge your hidden talents during a sculpture class.”

Park exhibit buildings are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend to October 31. The grounds remain open until dusk. From November through Memorial Day weekend, exhibit buildings are closed but the park Visitor Center is often open. Bronze casts of the Shaw Memorial, Farragut Monument, and the Adams Memorial are exhibited on the grounds and may be seen year round.
