Franklin Park Conservatory

The Franklin Park Conservatory, located in Columbus, Ohio, was built in 1895.  It houses over 400 species of plants, and features a Victorian Palm house with more than forty different kinds of palms.
Throughout the year, there are many special displays.  One of the prettiest, is the Victorian Garden Orchid display, held during winter months.  You can see hundreds of orchids and learn about how they were cultivated during Victorian times.
