The firm of Frederick Law Olmsted was involved in over 1,200 landscape architecture projects throughout Massachusetts, ranging from expansive 500-acre public parks to intimate private gardens. One of its greatest achievements is a six-mile “emerald necklace” of ponds, parks, and parkways that winds its way through Boston. Alan Banks will sample this rich landscape legacy and explore the ideas that shaped some of the most treasured lands in Massachusetts. Banks oversees the historical interpretation of Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline, Massachusetts.
