Rockefeller Park Greenhouse


The Rockefeller Park Greenhouse was conceived in 1903 and finished in 1905, on part of the 270 acres donated to the city of Cleveland by industrialist, John D. Rockefeller.

The billionaire's much-publicized tax dispute with Cuyahoga County and the subsequent death of his wife, Laura, ultimately pushed Rockefeller and Standard Oil to leave Cleveland for good and return to New York in 1917.
