Welcome to the Olmsted Legacy Trail. This website provides education about the life and works of Frederick Law Olmsted in Connecticut. Other goals for this website and trail include:
Support the study and preservation of historic landscapes in Connecticut.
Promote landscape architecture in Connecticut.
Drive tourism activity to Olmsted sites and communities, similar to other “trail” concepts.
Expand the trail to include neighboring states with Connecticut as the nexus to the trail.
This site was created by a dedicated team of volunteers from the Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (CTASLA). Additional entries are being added as part of our Olmsted200 storytelling!
If you would like to help contribute to this work (or would like to help us improve an existing entry), please leave us a message using the Contact page.
