Fodor's Review

For 33 years, this was the summer home of the sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850–1931), who created The Minuteman in Concord and the Lincoln Memorial's famous seated statue of the president in Washington, D.C. Tours are given of the house, which is maintained in the style of the 1920s, and of the studio, where you can view the casts and models French used to create the Lincoln Memorial. The beautifully landscaped 122-acre grounds also make for an enchanting stroll, bedecked with a contemporary sculpture show during the summer. If you are in the area on Memorial Day weekend, come for the annual classic car show.
