Asticou Terraces, Thuya Lodge & Thuya Garden

Thuya Lodge was constructed from 1912-1916 by Boston architect Joseph H. Curtis. The Asticou Terraces were designed by Curtis as a series of paths and shelters from Peabody Drive up to the Lodge. The Garden was constructed and designed in 1956-1961 by Charles K. Savage, trustee of the property upon Curtis' death. Curtis was a summer resident of Northeast Harbor, ME and chose to give Asticou Terraces, Thuya Lodge, and Thuya Garden to the public. A memorial to Curtis is now found on the grounds.
