Rotary Century 1900’s Plaza

The 1900s Rotary Century Plazas is the largest of the three century plazas to teach about people/plant relationships during that time.

The reason this plaza is so large is because so much happened during the 20th century. Mankind went from plowing with horses to the moon!

In Cheyenne, we had the creation of the High Plains Horticulture Research Station. Many of the plants in this area are from the old research station. It also marked the time when the tractor was invented and we have a wonderful old historic tractor on display. This was also the century when the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens was founded (1977).

This plaza area also features a collection of antique roses that were popular during the early 1900s.
