MANITOGA, the House, Studio and 75-acre Woodland garden of mid-century designer Russel Wright (1904-1976), is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a World Monuments Watch Site. It is one of the few 20th century modern homes open to the public in New York State.

Dragon Rock, Russel Wright’s House and Studio, is widely considered an outstanding example of Organic Modern architecture ca. 1960. Architect David Leavitt (1918-2013) is credited with the exterior design and Wright, the interior design. It was occupied by Wright and his family until his death in 1976.

The public entrance to Manitoga is located in the heart of New York's Hudson Highlands, 50 miles north of Manhattan in Garrison, NY.
