Manitoga, the House, Studio and 75-acre Woodland garden of mid-century designer Russel Wright (1904-1976), is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a World Monuments Watch Site. It is one of the few 20th century modern homes open to the public in New York State. Our mission is to ensure that the extraordinary spirit of place of Manitoga and the timeless design vision that inspired its creation are preserved and shared. Manitoga offers a variety of public tours of the House, Studio and May through November. There are also 3 miles of Russel Wright designed trails that are open to the public dawn to dusk each day. In 2014, Manitoga initiated an artist residency program designed to reignite the atmosphere of creativity and expereimentation Wright cultivated during his lifetime. Manitoga been profiled in national and international press outlets including The New York Times, Financial Times, Curbed.com, Architectural Digest, Conde Nast Traveler and more.
