Join us on Thursday, August 17 at 11:00 a.m. for a guided tour of the Frederick Law Olmsted House and Gardens, located at 99 Warren Street in Brookline, MA. 

Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) is recognized as the founder of American landscape architecture. In 1883, after supervising the design and construction of such landmarks as Central Park and the US Capitol Grounds, Olmsted moved his family from New York City to 99 Warren Street in Brookline, Massachusetts. It was here that he also re-established his office. “Fairsted,” as he called it, served as both a home and the world’s first full-scale professional practice of landscape architecture. The National Park Service acquired Olmsted’s home and office in 1979 and maintains many of the working records in the interest of understanding and preserving the special places this firm created.
