At the turn of the century Frederick Law Olmsted, the countries most famous landscape architect came to World’s End and designed the landscape in a way that would forever influence every visitor to the property. This October, we are celebrating his life and work by taking a closer look at the designed landscape of World’s End and uncovering his vision for the 251 acre peninsula.

 Join us for a guided walk along the century old cart paths and step back in time to learn all about Olmsted’s involvement at Worlds End from a landscape architect’s point of view. We’ll discuss the original land owners of the property, Olmsted’s design work, and how World’s End eventually became a Trustees reservation. We’ll also take a close look at the relationship between Olmsted and his protégé Charles Eliot, the founder of The Trustees of Reservations.  Preregistration is recommended for this program, while day-of admission will be accepted.
