Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site

This American elm was on the landscape when Frederick Law Olmsted bought this property, which he called "Fairsted"� in 1883; moving his family and landscape architecture business to 99 Warren Street, Brookline. While Olmsted and John C. Olmsted removed other trees from the estate, they kept this particular tree as an important feature of the pastoral landscape they created in the southern portion of the then-two acre property.
