Outdoor plants came indoors on a large scale in the late 19th early 20th centuries. Plants were an easy way for Victorians to showcase their wealth within the comforts of their homes and allowed for their creativity to flourish. From June 1st-30th the self-guided experience An Indoor Victorian Garden returns to The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum.
All three floors of the museum will be filled with plant varieties popular during the early 1900s. Visitors will be able to delve into the history of what made each variety popular, learn the language behind giving and receiving flowers, explore once considered exotic varieties in wardian cases, and learn what some Victorians chose to do with their fireplaces during the summer!"
