A Walk in the Park: New Jersey’s Olmsted Neighborhood

In the late 1800s, Frederick Law Olmsted, the country’s preeminent landscape architect who designed New York City's Central Park and the National Mall in Washington, D.C., also designed Trenton's Cadwalader Park and the adjoining neighborhood, Cadwalader Heights, the only residential community Olmsted designed in New Jersey.  The houses range in size from cottage to castle, and in style from Colonial Revival to Tudor Revival.

In its earliest days, Cadwalader Heights was home to the captains of Trenton's industry, government, education, and fraternal organizations. One hundred and ten years later, the neighborhood is still one of the jewels of Trenton, successfully fulfilling Frederick Law Olmsted’s vision—a design intentionally cultivated to weave together a diverse group of people and foster a strong sense of community and mutual respect.

This year’s house tour will feature a representative sample of homes, in conjunction with an exhibit at Ellarslie, “Cadwalader Park: An Olmsted Vision.”  Enjoy the house tour, the museum exhibit, and plein air artists painting and drawing in the park and throughout the neighborhood.

Our Nonprofit Partner

The tour is an opportunity for the Cadwalader Heights neighborhood to give back to the community. This year, our nonprofit partner, which will receive a portion of the proceeds from the tour, is the Cadwalader Park Alliance.
