The Rockery (Easton, Massachusetts)


The Rockery is a memorial cairn created by "The Father of American Landscape Architecture', Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted preferred the cairn to masonry or sculpture as he envisaged the symbolic growth of plants over the rockery of battle; its crest is made up of 47 stones - one for each of the Easton men killed during the Civil War.
