Frederick Law Olmsted Society of Riverside
Before his work on the White City, Frederick Law Olmsted created the storybook village of Riverside, a magical place of curving streets, gas lamps, and charming parks. It has since inspired architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan to create some of their most beautiful works. Over 80 landmark structures representing 143 years of iconic American architecture dot the village. Come and experience this very special American place, a place with a hidden history that may surprise you.

Two-hour Walking Tours depart at 2:00 PM. alternating between North and South areas, from the Riverside Train Depot, May through October, generally the last Sunday of the month. Special Group Tours by appointment. Fee $10 per person ($7 for Olmsted Society Members and seniors 62+).

The Society also offers visitors a biennial Housewalk in May, an evening lecture series at the Riverside Public Library and FRED, a 3 day landscape design symposium in August. Please visit our website for details.
