The Olmsted Brothers architecture firm under the leadership of Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. and sons John Charles and Frederick Law, Jr. left a lasting legacy across North America. An outspoken writer against slavery and a former head of the U.S. Sanitary Commission, Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. is greatly remembered as the protector of Niagara Falls and the designer of the grounds of the famous Biltmore Estate. Son John Charles Olmsted laid the groundwork for the park systems and many university campuses in the Pacific Northwest.
