An official Path Through History Site! Located in Garrison, New York, approximately one hour north of New York City, Manitoga is the former home and 75-acre woodland garden of American industrial designer Russel Wright (1904-1976). The home stands as a testament to Wright's belief that man should live in harmony with nature. In designing the landscape and home, he opened up vistas of the river and surrounding mountains to create a living theatre. His home and studio, nature and design are intertwined through elements such as a staircase crafted from boulders, tree limbs used as uprights, and natural elements incorporated into wall coverings and other surfaces. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and one of the few 20th century modern homes with original landscape open to the public. Nature hiking, picnicking, views of Hudson.
