Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), created over 150 works of art, from exquisitely carved cameos to heroic-size public monuments. Works such as the "Standing Lincoln" monument and the Shaw Memorial, continue to inspire people today and his design for the 1907 Twenty Dollar Gold Piece, is considered America's most beautiful coin. Over 100 works of the sculptor are exhibited in the galleries and on the grounds at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. Saint-Gaudens NHS preserves the home, gardens, and studios of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The park is comprised of 195 acres owned in-fee, with an additional 175 acres included in the authorized boundary. Much of the park is wooded, but there are sections of open field and wetlands. There are two hiking trails on the property, the Ravine Trail (0.25 miles) and the Blow-Me-Down Trail (1.5 miles). The Ravine Trail skirts the edge of the Blow-Me-Up Brook, while the Blow-Me-Down Trail offers glimpses of the Blow-Me-Down Brook and the Mill and Pond. From these trails a variety of wildlife can be seen; a single hike can bring sightings of Eastern Newts, Beavers, White-tailed Deer, Common Garter Snakes, Mink, and numerous bird species. In all there are over 200 species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish found at Saint-Gaudens NHS. The park is located on a west-facing slope and visitors are offered a marvelous view of Mount Ascutney and the Green Mountains of Vermont. Visitors are also treated to the colorful landscape of the formal gardens as they tour the grounds. The gardens were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and although they have changed over the years, the over-all design remains that of the sculptor. There are over 400 vascular plant species at Saint-Gaudens and seventeen of them are known invasive plants. Each invasive is monitored for spread and controlled based on its invasiveness, ease of removal, and threat or damage caused by the species.

Visit the Cornish, New Hampshire, home, gardens, and studios of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America's foremost sculptors. This was his summer residence from 1885 to 1897, his permanent home from 1900 until his death in 1907, and the center of the Cornish Art Colony. On the weekends in summer they have concerts on the grounds, where you can bring your own picnic to enjoy.
