The Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site celebrates the life and works of the great American landscape architect. Olmsted is best known for his work on Central Park in New York City and the Emerald Necklace in Boston. For being the home of a landscape architect the grounds are unimpressive. Instead of heavy landscaping a more natural look is prevalent.
The house is available for tours where you can review the landscapes designed by Olmsted and learn about the methodology used in the design office.
