Saratoga Springs is a leader in the nation’s historic preservation movement. With more than 1,000 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Saratoga Springs was honored with the first American Heritage Magazine “Great American Place” award and the National Trust for Historic Places’ “Great American Main Street” award. Walking Magazine cited it as one of America’s “Most Walkable Cities.”
Local landmarks Saratoga Spa State Park, Congress Park, and the Canfield Casino have received designation from the National Park Service as National Historic Landmarks.
At The Gideon Putnam, stately structures merge with their natural surroundings. Grand marble pillars frame meandering paths that invite exploration. The exalted landscape design of Arthur J. Brinckerhoff beautifully connects The Gideon Putnam with neighboring Roosevelt Baths & Spa, Victoria Pool, and all that Saratoga Spa State Park has to offer.
Preserving Saratoga’s remarkable architectural heritage continues in the 21st century–and so does Saratoga Spring’s reputation as a showcase for both the practice and the benefits of historic preservation.
