Cannon Park, Charleston, South Carolina. In 1981, the city proposed a redevelopment of Cannon Park along the lines of the proposal drafted by Olmsted in the late 19th century. The Olmsted Brothers, a Brookline, Massachusetts landscaping firm, had designed plans for a park during the 1890s, but they were never implemented before the site became Thomson Auditorium. The proposal retained the columns as a focal point and established the landscape around them using palm trees and oaks.
