The Palm House, Glen Oak Park, Peoria, Illinois. "Glen Oak Park...forms another beautiful and unique feature. In the midst of a landscape beautiful for siltation, it has been greatly improved by the construction of lakes, ponds, fountains, rustic bridges, Palm House, Pavilion and all other necessary buildings, with many beautiful walks and drives." — The History of Peoria County, Illinois; Johnson & Co., 1880.
