The Rawlings Conservatory

Baltimore is very lucky to have the Rawlings Conservatory as one of its place to visit.   In 2013 Rawlings celebrated its 125th Anniversary.  It is the second oldest glass conservatories in America.  It opened in 1888 as the Druid Hill Conservatory.

The Rawlings Conservatory is located in Druid Hill Park.  Druid Hill Park, Cylburn Arboretum, the Baltimore City Hall and the Rawlings Conservatory were all designed by architect George A. Frederick.  When it opened in 1888 Rawlings Conservatory had only two rooms.  It had the Palm House and the Orchid Room.

In 2002 the Conservatory was closed for major renovations.  When it re-opened in 2004 it had been expanded with three new rooms.  The Mediterranean House, the Tropical House and the Dessert Room were all added.  The Conservatory was re-named the Howard Rawlings Conservatory in honor of the Maryland House of Delegates chairperson of the appropriations committee Howard Rawlings. He must have done some major lobbing to get that honor

The Palm House is still one of the most stunning areas.

The Orchid Room is the most colorful

The Mediterranean Room has some more muted plants.

The Desert Room is a little more to the point.

The Tropical Room is wet and full of beautiful flowers and Plants.

We will explore all these on our visit to the Rawlings conservatory.  You will learn how to use your camera while enjoying some beautiful plants and flowers.
