Sweater #61

Nestled in the conservatory at the Tulsa Garden Center, sweater #61 might not be found right away.  The idyllic structure is reminiscient of larger city conservatories and was built during the first part of the 20th century showing homage to Burnham and other neoclassical architecture and manicured French garden design.  Originally, the house and conservatory were private, built before the Great Depression and detailed to the fullest with splendor.  Frequented by locals and hopefully tourists, the grounds are now a part of the public park system providing a teaching garden, an arboretum and a history museum on the grounds.
