Notman & Olmsted: Exploring Two Historic Parks

Saturday, October 22, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

The Trenton Museum Society and Marquand Park Foundation will present “home and away” tours of two historic landscapes, Cadwalader Park in Trenton on October 15 and Marquand Park in Princeton on October 22.

Cadwalader Park was the last great urban park designed by the founder of American landscape design, Frederick Law Olmstead. At its center is an Italianate villa, Ellarslie Mansion, designed by renowned architect John Notman in 1848. In Princeton, Notman was commissioned to design Guernsey Hall and its grounds in 1846. Seventeen acres were donated to the municipality by the Marquand family in 1953 to serve as an arboretum and passive recreation park.
