  1. I have always enjoyed the tranquility of this green house on the Duke Estate in Somerville NJ. It is being closed and dismantled. It will be missed.

    This place looks lovely Les, how come it's being destroyed?

    It seems like such a shame. They must have a good reason surely?!
     
  3. Robert it is a shame. This conservatory is one of eleven on the Doris Duke estate. The estate was left to a trust many years ago. Recently the trust decided to dismantle their greenhouses. They felt that a greenhouse is not an environmentally efficient operation.
