Bushnell, Horace

Usually associated with his ideas of a nurtured faith & a moral influence theory of the atonement, he attended Yale Law School, passing the bar in 1831. He held two U. S. patents on home heating devices. He charted routes for the railroads & the canals to speed communication links with the frontier settlements. Almost single-handedly brought about construction of the first parks to be set aside in the nation, including NYC’s Central Park.
