Elks Temple History Pub @ McMenamins Elks Temple
Sep 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Elks Temple History Pub @ McMenamins Elks Temple

Frederick Law Olmsted, his two sons and the Olmsted Bros. landscape architecture firm left a huge imprint across all of America, in both urban and rural settings. This combination film screening and public lecture will detail that legacy, in words and images. Portland based public historian and writer/producer Laurence Cotton originated and served as Consulting Producer of the 2014 PBS special “Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America.” The film is a full biographic treatment of Olmsted’s life and career. It will present the case that Olmsted’s role in late 19th Century America extends well beyond his storied public parks…and it details the stories behind the creation of several of those key landscapes. A lecture by Mr. Cotton follows the film, which will be shown in its entirety.
