Conservatory Façade and Roof Restoration

Conservatory Façade and Roof Restoration

Stone detail on the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory.

The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) and Architect of the Capitol (AOC) has restored the deteriorating stone façade and roof of the historic USBG Conservatory. Aside from a modest addition at the rear of the building, the historic Conservatory exterior remains unchanged from its 1933 appearance.

The USBG Conservatory contains two courtyard gardens and 10 garden rooms under glass, totaling 28,944 square feet of growing space, and also has two exhibit galleries. The USBG is one of the most visited public gardens in the United States, welcoming more than 1.2 million visitors annually.
