Digital Landscape Tour

Olana’s Historic Landscape Digital Audio Tour

Self-guided tour of 1.5 miles of gravel historic carriage roads

Time: 45:08 (audio); approximately 1 hour with making stops

Helpful Hint!  There is free guest WiFi available at the Visitor Center/Museum (network name: OlanaGuest) for downloading your tour.  In addition, there is a map + brochure available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Learn about the history and ongoing historic restoration of Olana’s artist designed landscape. Imagine walking inside a Frederic Church painting. While you learn a myriad of facts you will be inspired on Church’s many historic carriage roads. The tour can be listened to anywhere, but to follow along with the geography, please start at the historic map sign at the bottom of the parking lot stairway. We suggest wearing good walking shoes. The route travels on Ridge Road, South Road + New Approach Road.
