Margaret Haviland Stansbury

glass house of dreams Margaret Haviland StansburyGlass House of Dreams celebrates Baltimore's landmark Victorian glass palace, the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical GardensĀ in historic Druid Hill Park. An extensive collection of original lithographic postcards illustrate the history of this 1888 botanical conservatory, the second oldest glass house in America. Photographs by David Simpson capture the elegance of this architectural gem and the beauty of its individual plants and flowers.

Margaret "Peggy" Stansbury is founder of the non-profit Baltimore Conservatory Association that worked with the City to bring this Victorian jewel back to life. The original Palm House featuring 175 glass windows, many of them curved, is once again packed with exotic flora from around the world.
