Not far from our hotel in North Seattle is historical Capital Hill, where you can find the Volunteer Park Conservatory. A fascinating historic landmark, this rare Victorian glass house is a treasure for anybody interested in seeing exotic and endangered plants.

Built back in 1912, the Conservatory has been dedicated for over one hundred years to the collection, conservation, and display of threatened plant species. The collection includes strange and beautiful plants that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere, including cacti, ferns, bromeliads, and the notorious corpse flower. Tour the five conservatory houses, or book the facilities for a wedding ceremony. Learn more at the site of the Friends of the Conservatory.
