Designed and preserved by artists, Weir Farm National Historic Site celebrates the power of creativity, art and nature. The 60-acres national park, which includes the home and studio of pioneering American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir, is one of the nation’s finest remaining landscapes of American art. It is the only national park dedicated to American Impressionist painting.
