Since 1893, Phipps has been a destination for Pittsburghers to celebrate nature in the company of friends and family — and that means a lot of memories have been made in our gardens! When faced with difficult times, it is comforting to look back upon these memories with fondness while we wait for the Conservatory to open its doors again. To keep the Phipps community connected and growing, we invite you, our valued guests, to share your memories of Phipps with us so we may display them for others to enjoy.
Please consider sharing your memory, including photos, an optional video, and a short story or caption using the form below. A one-time $10 processing donation upon submission will help support Phipps so we may share special times with you again when we reopen our doors. By sharing photography and stories, guests like you are joining in our walk down memory lane and celebrating the special moments they've shared at Pittsburgh's glasshouse.
