Cedar Grove is located on a residential street in Catskill, NY, and might be easy to pass by. That would be a mistake as it is simply wonderful! The view from the porch has, no doubt, changed a great deal since Cole lived there but you can still get a good feel for what must have inspired him to make the lengthy trek to the mountains.
The paintings, limited in number, are wonderful to see and we had an excellent presentation during our visit. The discussion ranged from the New York art market in Cole's time to the construction of the out-house.
While in the area you might want to also visit Olana, home of Frederic Church, located directly across the Hudson.
