The Clarks were associated with Singer and made their fortune thereby.But they spent it beautifully here. The grounds are spectacular and worth their own time. The art is incredible....on a par with the Stewart in Boston...with particular pleasure to be had from the Remingtons.

If you enjoy contemporary art, nearby MASS moca is for you. If you prefer traditional paintings and sculptures in a classic setting, you will love this place. Astounding creations by classical and impressionist artists are presented in thoughtful way. A treat.
