Cream City~Windy City

Frederick Law Olmsted

Episode Summary

We look at the Father of Landscape Architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted, who had an outsize impact on Milwaukee and Chicago.   Olmsted designed some of Milwaukee and Chicago’s most exquisitely conceived parks.  The early 1890s found him working on projects in both cities - including the 1893 Chicago World's Fair - traveling back and forth by train the 90 miles between Chicago and Milwaukee.
