Have you ever wondered who designed Mount Auburn Cemetery?  Who were the remarkable Bostonians who shaped this new garden cemetery? If it wasn’t Frederick Law Olmsted (who was age 9 in 1831) who was it? Regarded as a significant innovation in American landscape design, Mount Auburn is the country’s first designed landscape open to the public and a National Historic Landmark. Join Curator Meg L. Winslow for a late-afternoon walking tour through the Cemetery’s beautiful landscape and learn about the landscape architects who gave shape to Mount Auburn.
