The Conservatory was built in 1912 to propagate and grow flowers and other plants for public display. Since then it has evolved to include five “houses,” each with a specialty collection: The Bromeliad House, the Palm House, the Fern House, the Cactus House, and the Seasonal Display House, which changes seasonally to provide year-round horticultural presentations.
The Friends of the Conservatory, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1980 to advocate for the Volunteer Park Conservatory and its collections, and to encourage public participation and education.
