The mission of the Library of American Landscape History is to foster understanding of the fine art of landscape architecture and appreciation for North America’s richly varied landscape heritage through LALH books, exhibitions, and online resources.

Founded in 1992, LALH is the only nonprofit organization in the world devoted to publishing in the field of American landscape history. LALH books are informative, engaging, and priced affordably, thanks to the generous gifts of our supporters.

LALH texts are written by leading historians in the field. Richly illustrated, they appeal to general readers as well as specialists. LALH touring exhibitions reach large and diverse audiences in museums, galleries, and botanical gardens across the continent. LALH documentary films are posted on lalh.org and other websites.

LALH is a 501 (c) 3 organization, recognized by the U.S. government as a publicly supported charity.
