Augustus Saint-Gaudens created some of America’s most iconic and quintessentially American sculptures. The Shaw Memorial, the Sherman Monument, the Double Eagle $20 gold piece, Standing Lincoln, and more. Come see his work and home up close and in detail at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.
Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, in Cornish, is New Hampshire’s only national park – and also one of the country’s least-visited.
This fact is both a real shame and also a bit of a plus.
It’s a shame because many of the pieces Saint-Gaudens created during his lifetime are on display in the park. On the other hand, lower attendance means a more pleasant, less crowded visit!
