99 Warren St.
This is a rare photo of the house prior to its transformation by Frederick Law Olmsted who purchased it in May, 1883. The house was built in 1810 by Joshua Child Clark and sold to Olmsted by Clark’s two living daughters, Sarah and Susannah Clark. The sisters were persuaded to sell the house, which was not for sale at the time, provided that Olmsted build them a cottage behind the house where they would continue to live.
