A "Green" Footprint
Time & Location
About the Event
Immersive experience! Unprecedented access to the Green Hill site of the mansion was destroyed in the 1950’s. Rewind to the 19th century, create and walk through a “footprint” of Green Hill Mansion! Step into the private world of Andrew Haswell Green and family at the site of this historic homestead. Andrew H Green is largely responsible for New York’s Central Park, the New York Public Library, the Metropolitan Museums of Art and Natural History, as well as the removal of the Tweed Ring and “rescue” of a threatened Niagara Falls. His personal life is as interesting as his accomplishments are daunting.
We will attempt to recreate the estate footprint exactly where it stood, gracing the landscape for nearly two centuries. Virtually embrace the Green lifestyle, home decor, cherished possessions, and pets as you hear tales of tragedy and exhilaration amidst one of America’s most selfless and visionary families. In addition, hear accounts of 20th-century events relating to Green Hill Park, Worcester’s largest Park, a Frederick Olmstead, Jr creation!
