Ames Gate Lodge is a lodge with an interesting gate owned by Frederick Law Olmsted. It’s constructed in 1880-1881 and designed by Henry Hobson Richardson at 135 Elm Street, North Easton, Massachusetts.

Ames Gate Lodge actually is a gate to the Langwater estate on southern of the lodge. It used rough boulders as the wall showed a clasic building on farm. Another interesting part is the semicircular arch gate as the entry to the estate. All of that capped by reddish-tiled roof with its eyelid dormers.

“The presence of a building is in its roof, and what a roof the Ames Gate Lodge has!” Frank Lloyd Wright wrote.
