Man masters nature not by force but by understanding.

The History

In 1874, Lincoln Park hired its first gardener and built what would be the conservatory’s first greenhouse. In 1887, the Formal Garden was added along with four additional greenhouses to support the garden, as well as the Eli Bates Fountain and the Von Schiller Monument. In 1889 the park commissioned renowned Victorian architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee and local architect M.E. Bell to design the conservatory building.
