Frederick Law Olmsted

Stop by the Library and take a look at our display on Frederick Law Olmsted before it comes down at the end of the month! Do you know that Olmsted not only designed the Emerald Necklace here in Boston, but is also the genius behind New York City’s Central Park and the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago?

In 1883, Olmsted set up his landscape design office, Fairsted, in Brookline. Fairsted has since been acquired by the National Park Service and is open to visitors as the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historical Site. Join in on one of their Walks and Talks and learn more about the father of landscape architecture while exploring the Emerald Necklace. A perfect way to take

in the all the beauty of autumn in Boston!
