GAISER CONSERVATORY AT MANITO GARDENS
The original 1912 greenhouse , named for longtime Park Board member Dr. David Gaiser , was
heated with coal during the long Spokane winters.
The conservatory was almost closed during the Great Depression, but a narrow decision was
made to close the park’s zoo instead.
During the 1974 World Expo people were allowed inside the greenhouse for the first time to view
special floral displays. Currently the Conservatory acts as both a small indoor botanical garden
and as a greenhouse for the park.
“When I see this painting, I see happiness. I see family. I see a place for reflection and
contemplation. I see a place, present and future colliding, intersecting ,weaving and dancing with
one another, and as a result I see joy on display, in full color.” Josh Misner, Ph.D
