There was a time when great artists designed our coins! Here's the home of one of them! Beautiful, moving, well-curated and set in a lovely part of New Hampshire. Seeing the bronze Shaw Memorial in a garden setting is almost a religious experience. There are...More

We all loved it. You are able to see the actual first prototype of the sculptures. Sherman's bust seems like it is looking at you. DO NOT miss the cameos. They are exquisite. The house, the carriages, his studio, and even the tree he planted...More

I thought I was going to be visiting a peaceful rural retreat and be able to enjoy sculptures. NOT! Lawnmovers, building repairs, busloads of people...not peaceful at all. Especially the lawnmover- even inside you could not hear yourself think. And not many sculptures...a few reproductions....More

What a wonderful place, evocative of genteel times when artists gathered in the New Hampshire hills to focus on their work. Casts of Saint-Gaudens's most famous works are gathered in one place, with context and insight into the sculptor's work. The staff could be a...More

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