Hailed as one of America's greatest artists of all time, take a trip to Ogdensburg NY and learn more about the man whose work is prominently displayed in the Oval Office.

Artist Frederic Remington is world famous for his bronze "cowboy" sculptures. But did you know he once owned a place in the 1000 Islands? The museum, located in Ogdensburg, NY, houses original paintings, sketches and sculptures, as well as many personal effects and correspondence that serve to bring his vision to life.

History

Frederic Remington (1861-1909) is best known for his art depicting the cowboys, soldiers and Native Americans of the Old West. The museum, originally a home, was built in 1810 and became the personal residence of Remington’s wife Eva, following his death. Founded as the Remington Art Memorial in 1923, the original collection consisted of artifacts derived from the estates of Eva and her sister Emma. Since the Museum’s founding, purchases and donations of Remington art and personal artifacts have added significantly to the breadth of this internationally acclaimed collection.
