The Smithsonian Gardens (formerly the Office of Horticulture) was established in 1972 to manage the Smithsonian's grounds, greenhouses, and horticultural collections including plants, garden furnishings, and artifacts. The Image Library began as a small in-house reference collection. The images document a wide range of activities including the construction and maintenance of Smithsonian gardens, landscapes, and interior plantscapes on or near The Mall in Washington, DC as well as special horticultural exhibits designed by Smithsonian Gardens.
