State of the Parks Report
In 2004 a State of the Parks Report was prepared for Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site by the National Parks Conservation Association. The State of the Parks Program was launched by the NPCA in 1999. The goals of the program are to find the best way to assess the health of natural and cultural resources and to produce reports to communicate the findings to the public and congress.
Did You Know?
Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ home was actually built in 1817 as an Inn. A large ball room once occupied half of the second floor. When Augustus first saw the house in 1885, he thought it dreary and forlorn.
