The Lyman Plant House

 A palace of light, warmth and life stands poised just above the pond on the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Smith College campus. The Lyman Plant House is the jewel of the Botanic Garden of Smith College. Built in 1895, it's eight houses represent the principle climates of the earth, and they include plants donated from botanic gardens around the world.

Step inside and explore this library of life.

The Portsmouth Athenaeum

The Portsmouth Athenaeum
in Portsmouth, New Hampshire is another gem. Photographed one Sunday morning this winter, this privately owned (but publicly-minded) library, museum and gallery offers a wealth of nooks and crannies to explore. Portraits, sculpture, model ships and a whale's eyeball all await you!

Explore World's End

In Boston Harbor there's a small island known as World's End near Hingham, Massachusetts.
 In the 1890s, Frederick Law Olmsted was asked to landscape the property in preparation for a housing development.
Today, protected by local advocates and the Trustees of Reservations, it's a glorious park.
