Olmsted’s Trenton Designs
Saturday, September 16,
10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

After an early lunch in Trenton, NJ, this bus tour will take us to Cadwalader Park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1890-92. His plan for the park left intact Ellerslie, an 1848 Italianate villa that is now the Trenton City Museum. An exhibit about Olmsted and his work will be on display there. Olmsted also planned the layout of a residential area, Cadwalader Heights, that is adjacent to the park.

In addition to being able to see the exhibit and explore the park, tour participants will have the opportunity to enter as many as 10 houses on self-guided walks in Cadwalader Heights. The houses range from cottage to castle in a variety of styles from Colonial Revival to Tudor Revival.

 

This tour is limited to 34 participants.
Fees: $120 for Victorian Society New York members, $150 for others
Paid reservations must be received by Wednesday, September 6
