Introducing the Summer Recreation Series at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

Cornish, NH: For the first time, Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site will offer visitors an opportunity to participate in historically inspired recreational activities at the park. Group recreation played a major role in the lifestyle of Augustus Saint-Gaudens and the Cornish Art Colony, forging camaraderie among its members and a sense of pride for their surrounding landscape. Come to the park and discover where the Saint-Gaudens' family and their friends played outdoor bowling and golf, went swimming and fishing and enjoyed other outdoor pastimes.

Participation is included with the standard park admission fee. Weather conditions permitting, activities and dates will be as follows:
