Frederick Law Olmsted: Designer of America & His Staten Island Roots | Episode 279

Join historian and filmmaker Laurence Cotton, originator of and consulting producer to the PBS special Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America, as he shares the remarkable life and career of the Renaissance-man Olmsted—writer, philosopher, social reformer, advocate for the preservation of natural scenery, and creator of some of the most beautiful public and private parks and gardens in all of North America. Mr. Cotton will include a focus on Olmsted’s life on Staten Island and his time at Tosomock Farm.

This program is presented by the Friends of Olmsted-Beil House with support from Turnstile Tours.
