WeidenmannDiscover Jacob Weidenmann’s Hartford

Jacob Weidenmann was one of the leading landscape architects of the 19th century. After emigrating to the U.S., he quickly gained a reputation for excellent design and brilliant solutions to complex engineering and architectural challenges. A leading innovator in the field, Weidenmann designed Hartford’s Bushnell Park and Cedar Hill Cemetery.

Discover Jacob Weidenmann’s Hartford is a series of programs highlighting his contribution to the city of Hartford. Presented by Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation and Bushnell Park Foundation, the four-part series includes a panel discussion and guided tour experiences of several Weidenmann landscapes.
