Average Reviews



At Frederick Law Olmstead National Historic Site, you can visit the world’s first comprehensive landscape design expert office.

Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) is the founder of American landscape architecture and is known as America’s premier park manufacturer. In 1883, Olmsted moved to the suburbs of Boston and established the world’s first full-scale landscape design office. In the next century, his sons and heirs allowed Olmsted’s design ideals, ideas and influence to continue.

Excellent national historic site full of history, beauty, and learning. Good for the whole family. They have the actual 66,000 some-odd original pictures there and they keep a vault with all the papers they organized. There are some neat plants and a garden you can walk through.
