Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park

Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park conserves the home, studios, and gardens of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907), an important American sculptor. Located in Cornish, NH, the residence was his summer lodgings and then became his permanent home from 1900 until he died in 1907. The park now displays over 100 works of art, such as the "Standing Lincoln" monument and the Shaw Memorial. There's also a Sculptor-in-Residence program that hosts rotating sculptors on-site. Besides creating sculptures, Gauden also designed the 1907 Twenty Dollar Gold Piece, long considered one of America's most attractive coins.
