The summer estate of Daniel Chester French (1850-1931), sculptor of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial, is one of the hidden gems of the Berkshires. Be the first to see French’s newly rehabilitated studio, tour the nine-bedroom residence, and explore the formal and woodland walks throughout this 122-acre estate. Discover how contemporary artists continue to be inspired by French.
Groups can picnic, order lunch, or request a private wine and cheese party on the Studio’s piazza, overlooking Monument Mountain.
