Cacti House Phipps Conservatory Schenley Park Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA

In 1902 the impressive Cacti House was added to the Phipps Conservatory, which is located at Schenley Park, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA. Henry Phipps’ original Cacti House later became the Desert Room as a more diverse selection of plants and flowers from warmer climates of the United States were added.
