Speaker: Artist, local historian, and FOBH Advisory Board member Giuseppe Settinieri

Join Friends of Olmsted-Beil House to learn about Frederick Law Olmsted and Staten Island’s Gilded AgeThe Gilded Age was a period in American history that began shortly after the Civil War and lasted through the early 1900’s. It was a period of great wealth, opulence and change. During this era, many grand estates and public places were built. Olmsted was associated with many of them. This presentation will focus on the private estates on Staten Island landscaped by Olmsted and the people associated with them during this period. They will include the Cazet and Nichols’ estates on Grymes Hill, the Shaw Estate (Bard Ave.), and “Clifton Berley,” the estate of Sir Roderick Cameron (Grasmere).
