Historical Tours of the Richardson Olmsted Campus Presented by Preservation Buffalo Niagara
Grab your hard hat and head inside the Richardson Olmsted Campus, a National Historic Landmark and one of the largest adaptive reuse projects in the nation!
Tours will be offered every Saturday and Sunday from July 9 through October 2, 2022.
Visitors will be immersed into the philosophies integrated into the Richardson by architect Henry Hobson Richardson, landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, and mental health advocate Dr. Thomas Kirkbride.
Led by an expert docent, the 2-hour “In Depth Tours” will feature 2-3 historic buildings and explore spaces untouched since the 1970s. Tour routes will vary throughout the season based on active construction, so each tour is unique.
Pre-registration is required.
Tickets will be released in batches throughout the summer to make sure everyone has the opportunity to get tickets. July tours are now SOLD OUT. Tours for August will become available mid-July. Join our e-list to get first notice when tickets become available!
August Tour Tickets Coming Soon!
