Art, history, and nature come together in Cornish, NH. Once the home of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens and unofficial center of the Cornish Colony of artists, Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park continues to attract people from across the world. These tips will help you prepare for your next visit to the park whether you are drawn by its rich history, fragrant gardens, large-bronze sculptures, or opportunity to connect with the ones you love.

Bring your furry friend.
Dogs are permitted on park grounds, but must be kept on a leash at all times. This includes when hiking the nature trails. We ask that dog owners be respectful of the park and remove dog waste. Bags for that purpose are located in a dispenser near the kiosk in the main parking lot. Pets are not permitted in any park building except for trained service animals. This includes the Atrium where the Reflecting Pool is located. Learn more at Pets.
