About Howard P. Rawlings Conservatory
The Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens was established in 1888 as the Druid Hill Conservatory. It has grown from the original Palm House and Orchid Room to include three greenhouses, two display pavilions and outdoor gardens offering 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. It seats approximately 60 guests in each pavilion (separated by various green houses.) With larger groups like your own, you might consider putting up a tent on the north lawn to accommodate everyone in a single space or be okay with hosting a cocktail style wedding rather than a seated event. This location is magical in the evening with colored lights illuminating the greenhouse rooms. It also offers a lush feel throughout with plants always in bloom. Fewer decorations are needed here which can be appealing.
