Established in 1872 and designed in collaboration with Frederick Law Olmsted, the Arnold Arboretum is a National Historic Landmark and one of the best preserved of Olmsted's landscapes. Occupying 281 acres, the Arboretum's living collection of trees, shrubs, and woody vines is recognized as one of the most comprehensive and best documented of its kind in the world. Join Lisa Pearson, head of the Arboretum's Library and Archives, for an insider's discussion about the founding of the Arnold Arboretum and its twin roles as an Olmstedian public park and research institution.
Presented jointly with the Victorian Society in America: New England Chapter.
Please join us for a reception prior to lecture beginning at 5:30 p.m.
