Tour of Olmstead Historical Site in Brookline with NPS and Many Ivies

The Story Behind the Story of the Emerald Necklace!

Calling all history buffs, outdoor explorers, park lovers, landscape architects, and curious young alumni to an afternoon with the National Park Service at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.  Frederick Olmsted, the famous mastermind of Central Park, the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair grounds, and our very own Emerald Necklace, had his home and offices in Brookline until 1989. 
In celebration of the centennial of the National Park Service, the rangers at the Site will give young alumni of Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale a private tour through the historic design studios and outdoor landscape.  

The Yale Young Alumni Committee will provide drinks and snacks before and after the tour so come learn about Olmsted and mingle with friends, new and old!
