Frederic Remington House (also known as Frederick Remington House) in Ridgefield, Connecticut, was the home of the painter and sculptor Frederic Remington in the last year of his life. Remington designed the two-story gambrel-roofed, fieldstone-and-shingle house himself.[2] He produced some of his finest work in the house including the sculpture "The Stampede" and the painting "The Love Call".[3] The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.[2]
