The Grounds

The Saint-Gaudens Memorial was incorporated to maintain a living memorial to Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the site of his home and studios in Cornish, New Hampshire. It partners with the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park to enhance appreciation of the arts through exhibitions, concerts, fellowships, and public programs. The national park includes 83 acres with more than 100 of the sculptor’s artworks on display. Most of your questions can be answered by exploring the Park’s website, but please feel free to call (603) 675-2175 x100, if you need additional information or would like to speak to a ranger.

On View

Exhibited on the grounds are full-size bronze casts of some of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’s most famous works, including the Admiral David G. Farragut Monument, the Adams Memorial and the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial. Widely considered his masterpiece, the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial was described as “a symphony in bronze” and took him 14 years to complete. Also exhibited are the ten- and twenty-dollar gold pieces commissioned by President Roosevelt, which were minted from 1907 to 1933.
