In the early nineteenth-century, Boston philanthropists designed and funded institutions to create a city of culture and learning through the arts sciences and education for residents and immigrants. They also supported institutions that delivered medical and dental services for those in need. Today the tradition continues and Back Bay Fens represents all that and more. The Art, Architecture and Gardens walking tour highlights the aforementioned while strolling along the southern Fens, a section of the Emerald Necklace designed by landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted. It includes an introduction to architecturally significant buildings, gardens, and pieces of art work. Participants learn about the history, stories, architectural details and the significant impact each had on society.
