“Olana is the monument of Emerson’s, Thoreau’s and Whitman’s America…”
– David Huntington, The Landscapes of Frederic Edwin Church: Visions of an American Era, 1966
In 1966 an extraordinary coalition of private citizens and elected officials succeeded in saving Olana from dispersal and destruction. Ever since this combination of public and private support has ensured that this unique treasure of American art and landscape, a key National Historic Landmark within the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, is sustained for future generations.
