The homestead of Grandma Moses (1860–1961) is still owned by her descendants, who operate the Mount Nebo Gallery (60 Grandma Moses Rd., off Rte. 22 south of Cambridge, 518/686-4334, www.willmoses.com, 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Mon.–Fri., 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Sat., noon–5 p.m. Sun.) next door to their farmhouse.
For sale inside are paintings, prints, posters, calendars, and greeting cards by Moses’ great-grandson Will Moses. Also a self-taught artist, Will carries on in his great-grandmother’s tradition, painting farm and village scenes of a bygone era.
To view the largest public collection of paintings by Grandma Moses, as well as the one-room schoolhouse that she once attended, continue south on Route 22 to Route 7, then head east across the state line to the Bennington Museum (W. Main St., 802/447-1571, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. daily, adults $8, seniors and students $6, under 12 free) in Bennington, Vermont. The museum is about 18 miles from Eagle Bridge.
