Saint-Gaudens is still a bit of a secret and I have a hard time understanding why. The National Site features the home and studio of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America's most famous sculptors. The house, large and elegant in it's position atop the hill is open for tours (downstairs only). Although somewhat dark and "close" it is worth the time... More

We went to visit the house, outbuildings and gardens because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were staying on Lake Sunapee. It took around 50 minutes to get there, one way going on the highway (Lebanon), the other through the countryside (Goshen and Newbury). We had a lovely time. We knew of some of his works ( Robert Gould Shaw... More

This is a wonderful magnificent place to visit. The information the sculptures the house the grounds were all exceptional. The work of this man's life and his family are exceptional and fascinating to learn about.

I wanted to visit Saint-Gaudens National Site mostly because it is New Hampshire's only National site. I knew nothing of Saint-Gaudens before yesterday and really wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I suprised. It was absolutely beautiful, and everyone was so informative and friendly. It was so relaxing and casual, I could have stayed forever. My only issue or suggestion is... More

We went here without knowing anything about St. Gauden. We drove around the grounds and did not go into the buildings or courtyards, therefore we missed most of the things to see. From what I saw, I think it would have been a great place to visit. My family is not as much into art, history, and architecture as I... More

For $7 you can see the home of one of the greatest American sculptors, learn his life story, see originals and recasts of his greatest sculptures, experience Civil War history and take a short trip back to the Gilded Age. Your ticket is good for 7 days, so you can return to walk the trails and explore the grounds and... More

By standards, this historic site is a small gem. The home and grounds of famed sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, are a place to hike, picnic, attend a concert or just marvel at the copies of statues that now stand in many US cities. The park is small enough to do several things on the same day, but you will want to... More

Honestly, I wasn't that familiar with A. St. Gaudens but I had seen and heard of a few of his works but can't admit I would have put the two together. Nonetheless the house is a good albeit short tour of a great old home. The two, of the many pieces that make it all worthwhile (at least to me)... More

We visited Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site yesterday on the occasion of the unveiling of the strupture "Standing Abraham Lincoln" from St. Gaudens. As we arrived at this former art colony late in the afternoon, we got a good parking spot just at the entrance. Although the main house was closed, the other buildings and the gardens were open. There were... More

A drizzly morning and a very quiet place. Start by watching the brief video to explain the importance of Saint-Gaudens and the role of sculpture during that period in history. The sculptures are displayed very elegantly. We didn't have time to do the house, but the grounds and gardens were lovely.
