Even if you do not know who Frederic Church was, or you have never seen any of his paintings, you should see Olana. The story of the house, its architecture, the creation of the landscape, the near-fatal sale, the just-in-time saving of Olana....it all makes a great story. I recommend you book a house tour in advance either on line or by phone. (You can see the grounds on your own.) Our guide seemed to know everything about Church and this house. This is really worth a visit. Note: there is really no food on site, so eat before you go, or bring a picnic.
