Set against the sapphire backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, Castle Hill on
the Crane Estate in Ipswich, Massachusetts, is today a National Historic
Landmark and the only known designed landscape of its size and kind
still in existence in North America. This beautifully illustrated and
practical guide provides the history and context of the stunning country
estate of plumbing magnate Richard T. Crane, Jr. and his family, which
draws many thousands of visitors each year. It includes the house
designed by architect David Adler in 1928, with period furnishings, and
marvellous natural landscapes and extensive gardens designed by some of
the century's most notable landscape architects such as Arthur Shurcliff
and the Olmsted Brothers.
