Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

The monument commemorating the Civil War naval hero Admiral David Glasgow Farragut was Saint-Gaudens' first public commission. It was begun in 1879 and unveiled in Madison Square Park, New York City in 1881, where it still stands.

Here in front of you is the original Hudson River bluestone base adapted from the designs drawn by the sculptor's friend, the architect Stanford White. With this commission Saint-Gaudens' reputation was assured and American sculpture revitalized.
