Beautiful place
Apr 2021 • Couples
Currently visitors are allowed to walk the grounds of Saint-Gaudens NHS without entering the buildings. There are a few sculptures one the grounds that are interesting. The scenery is outstandingly beautiful. It was fun checking out animal “footprints” in the snow and mud.

Lovely outdoor sculpture garden
Sep 2020
My husband and I happened upon this lovely site. Saint-Gaudens's house is closed, due to the pandemic, but his studio is open. And the beautiful gardens feature casts of his famous sculptures, including Standing Lincoln, the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial, and the Adams Memorial in Rock Creek Cemetery in Washington, DC.

Beautiful Crisp Early Fall Walk on the Grounds
Sep 2020 • Couples
Starting just north of Keene, NH, my wife, Golden Retriever, and I drove up, leisurely, from Surry, NH, along Scenic Route 12A, just north of Keene.

Though the house and Visitors Center were closed because of Covid-19, we were free to walk the grounds, view the huge statue of Abraham Lincoln, see some of the gardens and obtain views of the outside of the house.

Along the route some individual trees were already turning color. I suspect that this Rt 12A Byway will make a wonderfully beautiful Fall Drive without the traffic of I-91. I highly recommend this route.

Loved the sculptures and gardens
Jul 2020
We were rewarded with a pleasant Covid visit to Saint-Gaudens this July. The grounds are open and maintaince is being done as well as the buildings being closed. The gardens were beautiful, the statues were awesome and held incredible significance, and the location's serenity offered a relaxing and thoughtful visit. The walk around the grounds can be done for free at this time and you can do it quickly or at a slower pace. We'd love to go back and see the insides of the buildings. The Shaw monument was the most powerful knowing the history of the event.

Really beautiful art
Jul 2019
Here you enter a world of art and beauty. Saint-Gaudens beautiful sculptures are spread around the park grounds. It is like a pleasure garden, especially on a nice sunny day.
He was especially known for Civil War era sculptures
There was a nice exhibit about Augusta, who was Augustus's wife, who was also an artist.

Great place to stop
Oct 2019
This place was unexpectedly the favorite part of a VT vacation with my family. We almost didn't stop but I have a NPS membership, so admission was free. It happened to be the last day of the season (buildings are all closed from Nov-May but you can still walk around the grounds) and we went on a very informative tour with a super nice ranger. They even kept the main house open for us to look around after our tour. Beautiful, well maintained grounds with statues sprinkled around - highly recommend a stop by if you're in the area!

Worth a quick stopover
Jul 2019
I am not much of an art person, but this was worth visiting for a little bit. I enjoyed spending a few minutes here exploring the gardens and the surrounding areas.

Not as impressed by this historic site as other reviewers
Oct 2019
The Ranger tour of the house seemed short and uninspiring. The studio was attractive but not that informative. The grounds are beautiful but I was expecting more statues and art work. It was not crowded at all as it was at the end of the afternoon. The changing exhibit showcased local artists.

Best to visit on an uncrowded day
Sep 2019
We visited this intriguing park on a soggy week day, when few visitors braved the rain. It turned out to be the right way to view these remarkable sculptures, and learn more about the artist. The works convey more than a powerful rendering of the subjects, they also tell a story. For us, it was worth taking the time for quiet reflection.
