Manitoga’s 2023 Tour and Program Season opens on May 12th
Visit MANITOGA, the House, Studio and Woodland Garden of pioneer industrial designer, Russel Wright (1904-1976). Experience Dragon Rock, Wright’s experimental home which he built onto the rock ledge of an abandoned quarry while masterfully orchestrating the surrounding landscape into a series of outdoor rooms of varying character and delight. Visitors follow the upper Quarry path to enjoy stunning views of the Quarry Pool, House and Studio. An ascending stone stair leads to a mountain laurel grove and the exquisite moss rooms before visitors cross a majestic waterfall over a wood plank bridge. Once at Dragon Rock, the House and Studio interiors are defined by expanses of glass, innovative materials use, and seamless connections to outside terraces. The experience concludes by following a stepping stone path over the Quarry Pool dam back to the Visitor/Guide House. PLEASE NOTE – Parts of the experience qualify as a MODERATE HIKE including a 40 stone-step ascending stairway without rails or hand holds. This tour includes the interiors of the House, Studio and Design Gallery.We look forward to your visit!
