In the 1930s, 40s and 50s, the signature on a set of dinnerware or piece of furniture elicited instant response. At that time, Wright was one of the top designers in the U.S. At the apex of his career, Wright left New York City and moved his base of operations to Garrison, New York. It was here that he created a unique home and designed breathtaking landscape. He named it Manitoga, meaning "Place of the Great Spirit" in Algonquin. Wright shared the Native Americans' respect for the earth. When Wright first found this property in 1942, it had been damaged by a century of quarrying and lumbering. Over the next three decades, until his death in 1976, he carefully redesigned and re-sculpted Manitoga's 75 acres using native plants. His extensive training as a theater designer and sculptor, coupled with his innovative design ideas propelled the landscape forward. Though the landscape appears natural, it is actually a careful design of native trees, rocks, ferns, mosses, and wild flowers. Wright created over four miles of paths that wind over creeks, into woods, among boulders, and through ferns and mountain laurel. Manitoga is the only 20th century modern homesite open to the public in New York, and one of few on the east coast. Wright considered it his most important creative effort. In 1996 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Manitoga's mission is to preserve the legacy of pioneer designer Wright - his home, landscape, products, archives and philosophy, and share them with professionals and the public. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark. House and Landscape Tours, April – October. 11:00AM daily, beginning at the Visitors Guide Bldg. Admission $15, seniors $13. children under 12 $5. Also offering self guided tours of over 4 miles of artfully designed trails.

A beautiful place with easy hiking trails and the opportunity to visit the design center. They have 3 or 4 short easy hikes but their trails also link in to the Appalachian Trail.

Great hiking tails (easy enough for kids too) and a very pretty property, especially for those interested in Russel Wright.
