California State Historic Landmark 841
#841 The Conservatory
California's first municipal greenhouse was completed in 1879. It was patterned after the Conservatory, Kew Gardens, England. A distinguished example of Late Victorian style using early techniques of mass production and assembly of simple glass units, it was a gift to the city of San Francisco by public spirited citizens.
Golden Gate Park, 0.5 mi W of John McLearn Lodge on J.F. Kennedy Dr, San Francisco.
