Saint Gaudens created the Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial. Forgotten by time he was a very interesting man. It is worth anyone going out of their way for a two hour visit to appreciate this artist and his times.

The video at the gift shop was a good introduction to the place. It was enjoyable walking the grounds and seeing the sculptures. We liked seeing the furnishings and artifacts inside the house. The park ranger was friendly and knowledgeable.

Saint-Gaudens combines history and art with a beautiful estate and mountaintop view. It was inspiring to hear about Saint-Gaudens and the work he did, then to see it firsthand compounded the man's talent. When my sister and I visited there was also a small exhibit...More

We had an unbelievable time touring the home and the gardens of Saint Gaudens. So glad we did it. Only open betweenMemorial Day Weekend to mid-October. Dogs are welcomed to walk the property, but must be leashed.

I'm sorry, I have no idea. I don't recall seeing any pets. Call the National Park Service, they will help.
