White House Conservatory - 1889

This photograph of the White House Conservatory was taken by Frances Benjamin Johnston. The massive Conservatory contained houses dedicated to specific plants such as orchids, ferns, grapes, geraniums, roses, and camellias and even had a house only for the propagation of plants. The Conservatory was located on what is today the West Colonnade and West Wing of the White House.
