Having driven through briefly off season a few times, I finally made this a destination. AWESOME and one of my newly found happy places. An National Historic Site, the preservation is remarkable, staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable. GREAT TIP-- if someone age appropriate for a National Pass- for $10, the family of 4 gets in!!! Thanks to the ticket sales... More

Staff was great. The sculptures and gardens are absolutely beautiful. This place is a hidden treasure. I recommend a visit any time but summer when things are in bloom make it extra special. Loved it.

My husband and I returned for a second visit to Saint-Gaudens because we love this place so much. This time we didn't visit the house but rather spent our time wandering the property, spending time with the sculptures, talking to the artist in residence and appreciating the beauty of the area. I love the way they have combined modern art... More

A planned stop for a weekend get away. Had no expectations, I had not heard of him. I feel iliterate now as he is a famous sculptor from the 1800s. The NPS has done quality work with this site. A must see is the movie in the visitor center auditorium. I feel a bit more enlightened.

We knew little of Saint Gaudens before visiting, but came away with a huge appreciation for this amazing 19th-early 20th century sculpturer. A charming place in a pastoral setting, many of his pieces (or replicas) are on display along with his handsome summer home. Well worth the visit to this beautifully done National Historic Site.

This was a great find, we were biking a 40 mile loop when we came across this National Historic site on a mountain overlooking the Connecticut River in N.H. Sincewe had our National Park passes with us we spent a good hour touring the gardens and sculptures of this famous American sculturist.

Being a lover of all things American History, I recently took my teen grandsons to Boston, MA. I was pleasantly surprised when my 12 year old knew the story of the Mass 54th and their role in the American Civil War. He LOVED the Shaw Memorial...... When my cousin saw me posting regarding the Shaw Memorial, she offered to accompany... More

Although we had lived within an hour of the Saint-Gaudens Site, it remained on my "list" until this past week. What we've been missing! The grounds and house are wonderful. The displays of this great sculptor's work are amazing. We just caught the beginning of the Park Ranger's tour. I'd advise anyone visiting to take the tour - you can... More
