FORMER MAYOR OF BALTIMORE STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE
The historic Rawlings Conservatory & garden is ideal for weddings, parties, charity events, and meetings — whether you want an indoor or outdoor setting. The unique space can accommodate everything from cozy receptions, to large cocktail parties, to elegant tented affairs.
Each Sunday of the month is learning time at the Conservatory, where our popular Plants and People program offers something for children, adults, and families. Join us, for workshops, demonstrations, exhibits, and more! The Conservatory is open Wed. – Sun. 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
In 2013 the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory reached a remarkable milestone: the 125th anniversary of it’s opening in 1888. Located in Baltimore City’s historic Druid Hill Park, the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens is the second oldest glass conservatory in America.
The Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens has distinct environments that allow the display of plants from all over the world. The buildings create an appropriate environment for plants from tropical, desert, and Mediterranean environments.
Come in and see why Margaret Stansbury was so inspired to write “Glass House of Dreams.” We have copies of the book for sale, as well as prints of photographs from the book and prints of historic postcards, all of which celebrate Baltimore’s Victorian glass palace.
