Full Description

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.
