The Preservation Society commissioned Reed Hildebrand Landscape Architects of Cambridge, MA in collaboration with Robinson & Associates Landscape Historians of Washington, DC to prepare a Cultural Landscape Report (CLR) for The Breakers. A CLR documents site history and existing conditions, provides an analysis of the landscape's integrity and significance, and outlines treatment recommendations for the preservation, interpretation and stewardship of the property. Learn about the fascinating history of The Breakers landscape and the guidelines established in preparation for its upcoming rehabilitation.
