Virtual Historic Site Visit: Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site Presents "Olmsted's Life & Legacy"

Throughout March, you can visit significant historic sites in Massachusetts virtually, courtesy of the Tewksbury Public Library's collaboration with select National Park Service units in Massachusetts. This week, learn more about Frederick Law Olmsted, a pivital figure who literally shaped parts of our beautiful town. 

Enjoy the virtual lunchtime lecture from the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline, entitled "Olmsted's Life and Legacy." While the world knows him today as the foremost American landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted would live a full life well before designing open green spaces. From a childhood in New England, Olmsted went on to practice farming, journalism, administration, and a number of other professions. Despite trying on many hats, everything Olmsted did in his life prepared him to become a landscape architect. Examine Olmsted's life from his early years up until his final days.
