Visit the Places that Thomas Cole Painted

The Hudson River School Art Trail connects you with the places in nature that Thomas Cole and the Hudson River School artists made famous in their 19th-century landscape paintings. Cole founded this nation’s first major art movement, now known as the Hudson River School, and advocated for the preservation of the American landscape as a national treasure.

Today, you can visit these magnificent views thanks to extensive preservation efforts.
