Olana and the Thomas Cole House

These historic Hudson Valley landmarks served as the homes and studios of two of America's most prominent nineteenth-century painters, Frederick Edwin Church and Thomas Cole. Olana was designed by Church as an integrated environment embracing architecture, art and landscape. The Thomas Cole National Historic site preserves and interprets the legacy of Cole, who is associated with the founding of the Hudson River School of painting, the first uniquely American art movement.
