Chesterwood

4 Williamsville Rd., Stockbridge, Massachusetts

Chesterwood was the summer estate and studio of American sculptor Daniel Chester French, located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. In 1896 French purchased the former Marshall Warner farm. Each year, during the month of May, he left his permanent home and studio in New York for six months and moved with his family to Chesterwood, where he worked on over 200 public and private commissions.
