Tourism and Post-war Garden and Park Restorations

Posted on October 27th, 2009 by JCReut

For a project that concerns the role of the US Government (Marshall Plan) and American tourists in the rebuilding of the post-war European historic landscape, I am seeking examples of historic public gardens or parks in England or western Europe. I would appreciate hearing of any examples of historic landscapes that were restored, rebuilt, or reconceived with the help of American funds (private or public) with an eye toward tourism. Alternatively, any suggestions on where I might inquire or research for case studies would be welcome.
