Manitoga Tours Begin for the Season

May 10, 2019

Visit Manitoga and tour the House, Studio, and Woodland Garden of pioneer industrial designer, Russel Wright (1904–1976). Wright built this experimental home onto the rock ledge of an abandoned quarry while masterfully orchestrating the surrounding landscape into a series of outdoor rooms of varying character. Tours begin with a short film about Wright's life and design legacy. Visitors then follow the upper Quarry path to Dragon Rock. Along the way, the tour features stunning views of the house and studio, an ascending stone staircase, a field of mountain laurel, and the exquisite moss rooms. DOCOMOMO members receive a discounted ticket price.

May – November 2019, Friday – Monday at 11:00am and 1:30pm; Select Saturdays at 3:30pm
Manitoga, 584 Route 9D
