Here is little background history on The Fairmount Park Horticulture Center! It’s a modern exhibition hall and greenhouse located inside beautiful Fairmount Park. The Center itself was built in 1979 and sits on the site of the former Horticultural Hall which is the 1876 Centennial Exposition building. The Centennial Exposition building was the location for America’s First Worlds Fair!

The center now serves as a stylish venue that provides its couples with the option of both indoor and outdoor space.
