Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center
One of the few 20th century modern homes open to the public in New York State, Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center preserves, interprets and shares Russel Wright's modernist home, studio and 75-acre woodland garden. Named Dragon Rock, Wright's home and studio is considered an outstanding example of Organic Modern architecture ca. 1960 and offers expansive views of the surrounding acreage. A joint project, the exterior of Dragon Rock is credited to architect David Leavitt and the interior design to Wright himself. The surrounding 75-acres of woodland garden were acquired and cultivated by Wright and his wife, Mary. Russel Wright and his family occupied the site until his death in 1976.
