Be inspired at Blithewood Garden, a classic example of a walled Italianate garden that was designed circa 1903 by Francis L. V. Hoppin. Situated on a steeply sloping bluff approximately 130 feet above the Hudson River, Blithewood is a 45-acre section of the Bard College campus that was once part of a historic estate. This garden remains as breathtakingly beautiful as ever, including its awe-inspiring backdrop of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River.
