Be sure to take the time to visit if you are in the Windsor/ Woodstock area. This was supposed to be just a side trip, but turned out to be a jewel of a stop. This is a National Historic Site, so we were able to use our Senior Pass. We lucked out! We got there at 5 to 2, only to discover that there was a 2 o'clock ranger walking tour of the site. Be sure to walk with the ranger because you learn so much, esp when you know as little about Saint-Gaudens as we did. Then the head ranger also told us that we could take a tour of the house at 3, so we took the free tickets for that too. The walking tour stops right at the house and then you can take the house tour right after. Be sure to do both. The sculptures on the grounds and the bas relief work, etc. are just all gorgeous. Be sure to watch the video at the visitor center to learn more about this extraordinary artist. A moderate amount of walking. You can take all the pictures you want. The scenery around the site is beautiful too...mountains in the background and the lovely gardens themselves. Do not miss this if you are in the area! A Must See!
