Olana,one of the most important artistic residences and planned landscapes in the United States,is the last and perhaps greatest masterpiece created by Hudson River School artists Frederic Edwin Church(1826-1900)
Church designed the landscape and his Persian style home on and around the same hilltop where, as an eighteen-year-old student, he sketched spectacular views of the Catskill and the river alongside his mentor Thomas Cole.
A designated National Historic Landmark, Olana State Historic Site opened to the public in 1967. The house,its contents, and the landscape still look very much as they did in Church's day
