Significance: Greenhouse of Luther Burbank, famed nurseryman and horticulturalist / In 1885, Luther Burbank bought a four acre plot of land on the southern edge of Santa Rosa. On this site, he worked for forty-one years as a nurseryman and horticulturalist on this site. In about 1889, he built the present greenhouse on the site directly south of the house. An itemized bill exists in Burbank's hand with the heading "Greenhouse, Jan. 1, 1890." Shortly after Luther Burbank's death in 1926, Elizabeth Burbank, his wife, remodeled both the residence on this site and the surroundings including the greenhouse. The brick facade at the east end of the structure was built at the same time as part of the remodeling. In 1977, with the death of Elizabeth Burbank, ownership in the property was passed on to the city of Santa Rosa.
