Inscription.  
This restored greenhouse was originally erected in the late 1940s from a prefabricated kit purchased from the National Greenhouse Company of Pana, Illinois. Potted orchids in bloom were brought into the Young’s home for interior decoration and many others were gifted to friends. The greenhouse was restored in 2011 by the Florida Park Service and the Friends of Washington Oaks.
 
Erected by Robert & Carolyn Bouck. (Marker Number 6.)
