Title

Letchworth Park: Map of Forest Arboretum, Nursery to Prospect home

Description

Continuing the reforestation efforts of William Pryor Letchworth after his death, an arboretum was established in 1912 that planted trees in blocks of individual species.

In the late 1920s, two maps were surveyed and executed by the Garden Club of America: where the Erie Railroad passed through the park; and here, near Inspiration Point, drawn at a scale of one inch to four chains (or 264 feet).
