Hamilton's Program in New York City students took a historically themed tour of Central Park on Jan. 29.  The group's very knowledgeable guide talked about the park's origins and purpose, and the way it had changed over the years. 

The students learned that the Tavern on the Green (now under remodeling) had originally been designed in the 19th century to hold the sheep who were sent out every day to the part of the park still known as the Sheep Meadow, to add to the "pastoral" character of the experience of visiting Central Park.  They also saw many other features, including the Ramble and Belvedere Castle.
