Olana was the home and studio of Hudson River School artist Frederic Edwin Church.
The house was designed by Calvert Vaux (best known for his work on NYC’s Central Park) in 1872.
It is a Persian styled confection located at the top of a hill, overlooking the Hudson River.
The day I visited, the house was not open to the public and extensive restoration work was being performed on the exterior. I look forward to returning here one day.
