Manitoga, Garrison, New York Manitoga was the estate and modernist home of industrial designer Russel Wright (1904–1976). It is located along New York State Route 9D south of Garrison, New York (US), a short distance north of the Bear Mountain Bridge. Wright named his masterful synthesis of architecture and nature Manitoga after Algonquin words meaning "place of great spirit". Today, the home, studio and surrounding woodland garden uniquely convey Wright's enduring ideas about good design and living in harmony with nature. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. In 2006 the Department of the Interior designated it a National Historic Landmark, the only one to date in Putnam County. Manitoga is a member of the National Trust's Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program and a 2012 World Monuments Watch Site. It is one of the few modern homes open to the public in New York State.
