Talcott Greenhouse Tour

Welcome to Talcott Greenhouse, Mount Holyoke College Botanic Garden's glasshouse. The greenhouses were built over several years starting around 1897, beginning with the Show House and Head House. A final wing, featuring a tropical Conservatory, was finished in 1899 through the funding of the Talcott Family. After almost 100 years of continuous use, the greenhouse received much-needed renovations in the mid 1990's. Today, the Talcott Greenhouse displays a living collection of plants from around the world, while supporting academic plant research at Mount Holyoke and providing a valuable community resource.
