Chesterwood is the former summer home, studio and gardens of America’s foremost public sculptor, Daniel Chester French (1850-1931). French is best known for his Minute Man, in Concord, MA, and the Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC. However, he created over 100 monuments during his lifetime, which can be found in 16 states across the country and in Paris, France. Chesterwood encompasses French’s intimate house, his European-inspired landscape and gardens, and his impressive studio, which showcases original plaster models and sculpture in bronze and marble. Admire the view of the Berkshire Hills or stroll around the buildings and grounds as well as the well-established woodland paths designed by French himself.
