The Piedmont Way Project was Fredrick Law Olmsted’s first residential commission drafted in 1865. Olmsted is one of our country’s first famous landscape architects, who’s numerous accomplishments include New York City’s Central Park and the Capitol Grounds in Washington D.C.
Over time, the street scape has deviated from Olmsted’s original vision as a result of development, the addition of overhead power lines, road repairs and maintenance, and the removal of original flora.
Through a 100% volunteer effort, Friends of Piedmont Way has come a long way toward getting the project off the ground. This fledgling needs your help to fly. Donations and volunteers are needed to see the project to its fruition. Go to www.piedmontway.org for more information on how you can help recreate a historic greenbelt.
