I’m still on vacation but I would like to share a recent visit to the Pool House, part of the Vanderbilt National Historic Site at Hyde Park In New York state. The extremely wealthy Vanderbilts are long gone though “Barefoot Kate” continues to welcome visitors to the estate’s lovely water lily pool. The little information I have been able to discover on this intriguing statue (including the nickname) is from the F.W. Vanderbilt Garden Association website. The date of its creation is given as 1902. However, the identity of the sculptor appears to be unknown.
Enjoy the mini-tour, both above and below the water!
