Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr, the Blue Garden opened in 1913 and was renowned for its unique monochromatic palette and elegant structures. Landscape historian Arleyn Levee explores the collaborative design process between the owners and the Olmsted firm, illuminating the story with original photographs, plans and drawings from the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site. She details the garden’s near loss after the owners’ deaths, and the rediscovery and determined rehabilitation of this remarkable space through the generosity of Dorrance Hill Hamilton. This awarded-winning book is a sumptuous 212 pages, cloth-bound, hardcover with dust jacket.
