*Chesterwood is the country home, studio and gardens of America's foremost public sculptor, Daniel Chester French. His iconic memorial for Lincoln is deeply ingrained in the American psyche. The pastoral setting of Chesterwood along with French's memorials became fertile ground for the concepts of Landmark I, II, III.
