Krohn Conservatory re-opens

Following six weeks of construction, Krohn Conservatory re-opened with a public ceremony on Saturday featuring keepsake posters and the unveiling of self-guided audio tours.

The $257,000 renovation project replaced the original, collapsed main sewer system in front of the building, rebuilt the Show House and installed a new floor, and installed new metal railing and a new waterfall bridge in the Palm House.

The Show House will remain closed through September 11 for the Fall Flower Show installation.
