Event Description

Morven is partnering with the archaeologists at Hunter Research to help bring A Gentleman's Pursuit: The Commodore's Greenhouse to life. Morven will explore the history of the Commodore's greenhouse – presenting archaeological artifacts, contemporary greenhouse designs, and a study of popular plants that the Commodore may have grown. This exhibit will give Morven a wonderful opportunity to focus on its unique garden history, placing it with the context of American nineteenth century greenhouse architecture and practice.
