Have you ever wondered what the greenhouse across from Founders’ Court is for? Well, we did a little digging in the University Archives and discovered that planning for the greenhouse started in 1965. It was initially called the Headhouse-Greenhouse because there are both a growth area and researcher facilities there. The UCI Greenhouse is a 9,000 square foot growth facility, in support of instruction and research in the Biological Sciences. Below are early photographs of the Greenhouse being built.
