Experience a guided tour of the sprawling woodland estate that was the brainchild of iconic American industrial designer Russel Wright. He introduced modernism to millions during the mid-20th century through his elegant and affordable designs for the home. In 1942, seeking respite from city life, Wright acquired the former industrial site that later became Manitoga – meaning “place of great spirit” in native Algonquin. Over the course of 35 years, he built his dramatic modernist home and studio and transformed the land into a woodland garden. Today visitors to Manitoga House & Studio (a National Historic Landmark) experience Wright’s masterful interplay of design and nature. Following the tour sit back and relax at Frattelli Trattoria known for delicious food and impeccable service.
Please note: wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for a moderate hike on uneven ground.
