Casa del Herrero
Designed by George Washington Smith, Casa del Herrero is one of the finest examples of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in America. It is included on the National Register of Historic Places, and maintains National Historic Landmark status in part due to its Moorish-style gardens created by Ralph Stevens, Lockwood de Forest, and Francis T. Underhill. Today, the 11-acre estate functions as a nonprofit organization with the goal of preserving the house and grounds, as well as the original owner’s family collection of fifteenth and sixteenth-century fine and decorative art objects from the “Golden Age” of Spain, books, sketchbooks, drawings, and horticultural records. Casa del Herrero is preserved and stewarded for the benefit of the community.
