Help Us Restore Our Historic Palm Court
A historic landmark for 125 years, Palm Court is the signature architectural gem that guests first experience at Phipps, home to breathtaking plant displays, inspiring seasonal exhibits and fine art. In this historic Victorian glasshouse, memories are made and shared by families and friends from Pittsburgh and beyond.
SPONSOR A PANE NOW
Your support will make possible a meticulous pane-by-pane replacement of Palm Court glass, returning the historic space to the luster of its opening day in 1893.
Palm Court's ogee crest, which has been missing since a catastrophic storm in 1937, will return to crown the Conservatory in its original historic design.
Thanks to your help, critical repairs to this historic structure will allow guests to enjoy Pittsburgh’s Victorian glasshouse treasure, preserved and protected for generations to come.
A Keepsake for Making History
With your sponsorship of a pane of glass, you will receive a frameable printed certificate with your pane coordinates, making it possible to locate your selected section in the conservatory. A special opportunity to honor or remember a loved one, donors will also be acknowledged through a special recognition display in Palm Court.
Note: Individual glass panes will not be engraved; your pane will be identified in a special certificate bearing its coordinates. All donor messages are subject to approval by Phipps.
