Brookline's Green Hill, a Neighborhood of Gardens and Gardeners   

In partnership with the Frederick Law Olmsted Historic Site
During the late 19th century, both Frederick Law Olmsted and Isabella Stewart Gardner moved to the historic Green Hill neighborhood in Brookline, MA within one year of the other. Olmsted, the nation's premier landscape architect, and Gardner, the founder of her eponymous art museum in Boston, changed and preserved much of the previously rural, natural landscape of Green Hill along Warren St. On this walking tour of the landscape, we will uncover the link between the neighbors on Green Hill and how the changes to the neighborhood, intentional or not, shaped the landscape we see today. The history of the land, the intention behind the designed elements, and the impact of the inhabitants will be recounted. This is a strenuous walk that covers mostly uneven outdoor terrain, but those who join may drop out at any point along the way. Meet at Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, 99 Warren Street, Brookline.
