"What once was the mansion of Isabella Stewart, a wealthy Boston arts patron who at the turn of the twentieth century accumulated a massive collection of classical art from around the world, is now a museum dedicated to telling her life story. In addition to her lofty accomplishments, she was a loyal Boston Red Sox fan and loved horse racing.

This route outlines where Isabella was known to frequently walk through this Olmsted-designed park." Read more
