"Jordan Pond Gatehouse" (sold)

Acadia National Park, Maine

Original painting of the Jordan Pond Gatehouse in Acadia National Park, Maine by Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"Jordan Pond Gatehouse" is an original watercolor painting by Beth Whitney


Architect Grosvenor Atterbury was commissioned to design two gate lodges in Acadia National Park by John D. Rockefeller, one at Jordan Pond and the other at Brown Mountain. The buildings were designed to mark the entrance of the carriage roads and keep cars out.

This view shows the Jordan Pond gatehouse from the Park Loop Road (the Jordan Pond House is just up the road). The French Romanesque building has such wonderful details and stonework that continues to the walls and gates off to the right. Acadia's network of carriage roads connect all around this point.
