Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, in New Hampshire, was the summer residence of American sculptor Saint-Gaudens, and his permanent residence at the end of his life. The galleries, studios and gardens of this beautiful site exhibit over 100 of Saint-Gaudens works, which ranged from monuments to cameos to coin design.

The home has its original family furnishings, and you can take a guided tour to learn about the private life of this great American sculptor. You can also walk the beautiful flower gardens and see his sculptures on display. Explore the two nature trails that traverse the site to witness the natural inspiration that Saint-Gaudens himself saw.

A sculptor works out of the historic Ravine Studio on the site grounds and gives sculpting workshops so visitors may create their own art, in celebration of Saint-Gaudens creative genius.

NPCA Recommends

If you visit the site in the summer months, you can enjoy the performance of a classical music ensemble in one of Saint-Gaudens’ studios. These summer concerts take place on Sunday afternoons through July and most of August.

Did You Know

The “Saint-Gaudens” is a gold piece that was designed by the sculptor in 1907 at Theodore Roosevelt’s commission. He was the first sculptor to design an American coin and his coin is considered by many to be America’s most beautiful.

Susan: If you click on the map in the upper right corner of the page, it will open a Google map where you can get directions. You can also click the "more info" link on the right sidebar to go to the NPS site with more trip-planning information.

I'd love to see a link to a map (Google? Mapquest? Yahoo?) associated with each park you detail. I'll plan a weekend trip if I can find out exactly where in the state it's located. Thanks! SKG
