The Mount: Edith Wharton's Estate and Gardens
This classical revival house represents the only full expression we have of Wharton's architectural interests. The Mount is an autobiographical house. Every aspect of the estate –including its gardens, architecture, and interior design – evokes the spirit of its creator. The house is the only U.S. monument to Edith Wharton, and one of the mere 5% of National Historic Landmarks dedicated to women.
