Scope and Contents:

General:
The Riverway is one of the sections of "The Parkway," Frederick Law Olmsted's grand design for a continuous green corridor (also known as the Emerald Necklace) running from the Charles River to Franklin Park. Following the course of the Muddy River from the Back Bay Fens, The Riverway was given its designation by a Boston Metropolitan Park Commissioners' 1887 vote as the area running from the Fens to upper Huntington Avenue and Leverett Pond. Construction of paths and bridges, grading, and planting of the section were substantially completed by 1895. The bulk of the images in this series were taken by Thomas W. Sears in 1907 and document both the Boston and Brookline sides of the river. The Emerald Necklace Conservancy spearheads contemporary efforts to preserve and restore The Riverway and other sections of "The Parkway" system.
Persons associated with the site include Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect, ca. 1880-1895).
Related Materials:
The Riverway related holdings consist of 2 folders (55 glass negatives; 3 lantern slides)
Records related to this site can be found at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, Olmsted Job Number 00930, Riverway.
