The park encompasses the former country estate of railroad magnate Frederick Billings, designed by landscape gardener Robert Morris Copeland (1830–1874).

The estate includes a “scientific forest,” planted in 1874 according to principles laid out in Copeland’s book Country Life (1859), reprinted by LALH. Billings (1823–1890), who shared Copeland’s progressive ideas about conservation and scientific forestry, is the subject of a future LALH book in which Betsch’s photographs will appear.
