Celebrating a visionary: Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th Birthday
Frederick Law Olmsted was born on April 26, 1822. Considered the father of landscape architecture in America, Olmsted designed the gardens and grounds surrounding Biltmore House. Olmsted’s contributions also include laying the foundation for Biltmore to become the birthplace of scientific forestry in the United States. On April 22, Biltmore will unveil Olmsted’s Biltmore: A Collection of Scenic Stops throughout its gardens and grounds. These interpretive signs will offer guests an opportunity to learn more about the impact of Olmsted’s accomplishments at Biltmore and appreciate the mature and preserved landscapes that he envisioned more than a century ago.
