The Creation of Ravine Lake and Blairsden

Ravine Lake with Blairsden in the distance.

He will also cover the building of the adjacent Blairsden, one of the most beautiful and architecturally significant Beaux-Arts ensembles of house and landscape in America and the site of this year’s Mansion in May.
