U.S. Botanical Gardens

botanical-gardens-late-19th-centuryI wanted to share a few images of the original structure of the Botanical Gardens on the Mall, taken sometime between 1850 and 1900. The current Botanical structures and site date to 1933.

Some may recall that the building was completely restored a few years ago. I’ve been there since, and its really kind of wild that you can find tropical plants growing on the Mall.

The gardens are open to the public, and if you want to see what’s currently in bloom, events, or even hours of operation because you’d like to plan a visit, you can go the the Botanical Garden Website.botanical-gardens-interior
