Explore the fascinating history, stunning architecture, and beautiful outdoor gardens of the School for Advanced Research. Originally the 1920s home of Amelia Elizabeth White and Martha Root White, the property was bequeathed to SAR in 1972. The 8-acre estate, formerly known as “El Delirio” (The Madness), is the campus for SAR, a research center for anthropology, archaeology, and other social sciences as well as the home to the Indian Arts Research Center.
