San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park

San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers

The Taube Family Foundation helped fund the restoration of the magnificent San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. Prominently situated near the eastern end of Golden Gate Park, this gem of Victorian architecture, modeled after London's Kew Gardens, opened in 1879 and is North America's oldest existing public conservatory. A city, state and national historic land­mark, the Conservatory survived the 1906 Earthquake to become California's oldest public greenhouse and one of the most beloved attractions in the Park.
