Learn about the history of the Frick, from 1882, when Henry Clay Frick and Adelaide Howard Childs purchased Clayton, to the establishment in 1970 of The Frick Art Museum, to the present-day, newly expanded Frick, which is visited by thousands each year.
Enjoy a stroll across the Frick’s lush, 5.5-acre-site lined with trees, flower beds and abundant foliage, and take note of the architectural splendor embodied by Clayton, the Frick family home; the Playhouse and Greenhouse, designed by Alden and Harlow; and The Frick Art Museum, the Italian Renaissance-style museum houses that collection of Helen Clay Frick.
