Biltmore Estate Landscape Architect

1822 - 1903

As work progressed on Biltmore Estate, his last and largest private project, Frederick Law Olmstead observed, "It is a great work of peace we are engaged in and one of these days we shall all be proud of our parts in it." It was Olmsted who suggested the country's first scientifically managed forest be established at Biltmore Estate. He is remembered with gratitude for his vision, his creative genius, and his reverence for the land.
