Recognized as the founder of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted established Fairsted in Brookline in 1883, the world’s first full-scale professional office for the practice of landscape design and now the Olmsted National Historic Site. Our ranger-led tour will take us through the Historic Design Office as well as the grounds, which have been restored to Olmsted’s landscaping. Most of our tour will be in the Historic Design Office, which requires climbing two sets of steep staircases. We will spend just a short amount of time in the fully accessible 1810 farmhouse that was the family home and is now an exhibit space. Van departs Café Tatte, 70 Charles Street, at 10 a.m., and Starbucks, 165 Newbury Street (between Dartmouth & Exeter), at 10:05 a.m. BHV members: $30. Non-members: $45. Price includes van transportation and guided tour. Lunch is not included in this trip.
