Did you know there is another, often overlooked architect who worked closely with Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux to design much of our favorite Central Park architecture? British-born architect Jacob Wrey Mould left his distinctive decorative fingerprints on many of the park’s structures, from arches and bridges, to the whimsical relief carvings of Bethesda Terrace. You can see his work first-hand on our brand new walking tour of Jacob Wrey Mould’s Central Park!

Our walk will take us from Tavern on the Green to Minerals Spring, to the Concert Ground and through the Arcade to Bethesda Terrace where Mould’s work can be found in the heart of Central Park. Join us to learn about lost structures and this rather mysterious figure while spending a beautiful Autumn day in the park with Untapped New York and former Central Park Conservancy tour guide Beth Goffe!
