Exhibition: From the Sea to the Mountains:
The Trustees 125th Anniversary

Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library

April 2 – August 28, 2016

This exhibition – which is free and open to the public – is a partnership between the Map Center and The Trustees, and features historical maps, photographs and historical items from both Trustees’ archives and the Map Center’s collection.  

Among the many fascinating maps and artifacts that can be seen and studied are two topographical maps designed by Trustees founder Charles Eliot, who first asserted the bold idea to form an organization that would preserve, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts.
