Agency History
For the final report of the Bureau of Horticulture, see Final Report of the Director-General.

The Bureau of Horticulture was established in early 1875. One of the major buildings of the Exhibition, Horticultural Hall, a large greenhouse and conservatory, was already planned to be one of the permanent memorials of the Centennial. The Bureau was responsible for the exhibits within this Hall as well as the landscaping of a 20-acre site around it.
